Last night was the first rapier practice of the year.

It was also the first opportunity to test drive in a bout the Agrippa that I have been drilling since before the end of 2010.

I must say that I was quite satisfied. The principle behind the mechanics does work rather well. However, since I have been practicing only those related to prima, I did go back to a Capo Ferro stance when I thought that things might not go my way. That worked too.

More drilling and practicing is in order. Must finish with the principles of prima and start researching the ones in seconda which, I must say, I did try anyway and seemed to work very well. But I need to learn more to get it to work better.

After all, no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy. The more the reason to expand the range of knowledge.

Belfebe out.
