Description
This course will review the two "levels" of blade control, called variously stringere, counterguard, finding, gaining, domination, and shutting out by period masters. The goal is to share observations about the instruction of new fighters relating to these concepts, and suggest more effective language and paradigm for instruction to avoid having to "un-teach" some common errors later in the fighter's career. A outline of notes will be provided. The class will be recorded given consent of all students.
