Update on Training

A quick update on what we have been doing.

Mostly focussing on the basics of attacking and defending.


  • Learning to cut correctly. We have used the method mentioned in Ms. 3227a and tied a piece of string to our edge and pulled the blade to the target, to simulate the path the blade should follow.
  • This motion must then be correctly applied as you enter distance.
  • Reducing telegraphic motions.


  • Basic Absetzen using the four primary guards.
  • Zornhau plays

We have also been working on some winding drills.
