This blog has four parts. YusefJournal is my personal blog, SouthtowerArmouringGuild is my armouring blog. Swordhandling is the newsletter for the fighting group, and CanTheyActuallyDoThat is my rant blog. Click on the picture to navigate them.
This is Bill carefully describing the sequence to yet another nasty trick...this one involves pushing the pommel over the shield, and placing it on the opponent's shoulder. The next part is the "step through", as I step to my opponent's right side. The sword will slide around in front. Looks nasty, because it is. The attacker had better step lively though since there are way too many openings in his defence to hang about.
And here we have the fine looking graduating class. Marcus, Jay, Andrew, John, Dan, Karen and Ian.
