Quickie Entry

He, he. I said *quickie*

Anyhoo. This week has been kicking my butt. After three weeks of absence from work, this is only to be expected.

But it was worth it.

Last night I made fencing practice. I was rather relaxed, and decided to perfect my new techniques. It is working rather well, although I still don't get as many touches as I would like.

Heh, that's only a matter of time.

In the meantime, I am frustrating the heck out of everyone else. That is rather satisfying. And when ballistabob and Seamus tried my own stance against me, I knew I was on to something . . .

This is just too much fun.

Of course, I am not yet satisfied with it. I still need to figure out a more seamless way of combining this with what I already have, but so far I am doing rather well. I even got to correct ballistabob's stance, directing him to put more of the weight on his back leg if he wanted to do this.

Yeeehaaa!

Thank you Dante!

Come to practice on Sunday and do the footwork stuff with Sir Strykar. He is doing amazing things with hips. ;-)

You know that these hips don't lie. Just like Shakira's.

You're welcome. Will you be at IB 12th? I'll be happy to geek with you some more.

BTW, "The Book of Martial Combat" is something I cannot recommend highly enough.

Sadly, I will not be at 12th Night. However, I will be at University and KASF. And of course, Ponte Alto Investiture, but I am not sure if our event conflicts with the Caer Mear one :-)

Thanks for the heads up on The Book of Martial Combat. I will check it out.

The Book of Martial Combat

What book is this?

It's a recent book by Steven J. Pearlman about the physiokinetics of martial arts, and deals mainly with principles rather than things specific to a particular style.

It is *very* enlightening and I've figured out how to do a few things better as a result.

Several of us local WMA folks have been playing with this a lot recently. Steve Hick (Sir Strylar) has been working it into some of the training he is doing with local SCA folks. I've been helping out where I can. You will see some of the fruit of this in my Zwerch class.
