We covered a lot of material in Sunday’s rapier class. For your benefit, I’ve taken the time to writing up some notes and posting them in our new website.
The new sections are:
Chapter 4: How You Shall Recognize the Near and Wide Measure
Chapter 5: About the Movement of the Body
Chapter 6: How You Shall Approach
Chapter 7: How You Shall Lunge
* Lunge in Quarta
* Lunge in Tertia
There are also some old videos on this site. We intend to refilm them using the new knowledge that we’ve gained over the last couple of months.
Speaking of the new website, it is now setup so that you can use it to take notes. Once you login, you can go to the page for the play we’re studying and hit “Add Commentary”. There is a box for private notes and one for public commentary that others can see.
In sword and buckler we worked on Manciolino Alta Play 3. Josh and I are planning to make a video based on what we learned next week. Once that’s ready I’ll also add my commentary on the play.
