We continued to expand on what we had been working on in t/last class but taking it up a level:
– increased movement/mobility.
– slow to fast speed of various exercises.
– fdr2 initiates to elicit response f/fdr1.
– adding “emotional” responses.
– started w/longblade finished w/long stick.
Tip awareness seem to be t/#1 fundamental principle. TBC constantly reminded us of it during t/entire class, as it seemed to be a natural habit of everyone to point tip away at some point of t/engagement. Other concepts to keep in mind are “2 beats 2 beats out” attack & don’t stand in front of your trg (constantly move w/nonlinear steps).
We concluded w/everyone taking a turn going ag TBC 1 on 1 for a few minutes at a time, both using a long stick. TBC being t/aggressor attacked us w/a variety of slashes, strikes & thrusts and it was up to us to tag his vt w/our stick in between all those attacks. It becomes obvious here why constantly being point-on is so important.
– Majority of t/exercises ran w/all 7 of us simultaneously in one space (2 2-person sets & a 3-person group). T/melee environment caused many of t/fdr2s to run into, bump & back into each other while trying to taking nonlinear steps away f/their fdr1s. It’s important to not solely focus on your trg that you neglect your environment & those around you. Peripheral awareness of your surroundings is just as important.
– Going ag TBC for that couple of minutes dealing w/a constant barrage of attacks revealed t/importance of possessing some cardio endurance. While 1 on 1 should not last that long, it is a training equivalent of going ag multiples/mass attack. My forearms also started to burn & tire out during that engagement. While some of this might be common sense, you forget about it until you’re in a situation that reminds you of it.
