Instructors: Brent Lambell and Stewart Sackett, Drei Wunder WMA || Portland, OR
This series of workshops is an introduction to Kampfringen, or combat wrestling, as it was recorded by medieval German fight masters. Kamprfingen is differentiated from Schulringen which is a sportive form of grappling used to help train techniques with some manner of safety. Kampfringen, by comparison, includes more destructive techniques alongside striking with empty hand or the rondel.
These workshops will cover basic striking mechanics, striking defense, Rondel techniques and how they integrate with Ringen. No experience is necessary.
Recommended equipment: athletic cup and mouthguard (not required)
