Test Cutting with Albion Talhoffer
Testing out a new sword. I tried to focus on being more fluid in this session. I found that, at first, I tended to ‘power’ the blow by cocking my hands back. I did find however, that not only was this a bad telegraph, it also made for a poorer cut. I think, if I can overcome this habit and get my ‘test cutting’ technique good on an unconscious level, my sparring will be improved. I just need more bottles (or mats).
