Skeldargate Rapier Report 8 Oct'09
- Attendees: Jocelyn, THL Gareth, Jessica
Donut Status: Present ( thanks the the efforts of mythical fencers)
Good mix of learning, teaching and fun had by all, from this reporter's perspective.
It was Jessica's first time out to this practice. She started out a little nervous, but with some encouragement and touring from THL Gareth she was in fighting form. Some experince and constant practice should build the foundations of her confidence in the matiral art. Jessica is prepareing to authorize at Huntsman's Harvest. This reporter has made mental note of the benefits of using drills as warm up as opposed to simple sparing, to spark the construction of confidence in all students.
THL Gareth's defense, still exists at the A range, making all a kill difficult, but not impossible. Putting his creative mind to use Gareth is currently experimenting with different shot combination sequences that this reporter did not expect. This reporter and THL Gareth perfomed a number of single sword, single & dagger and double dagger bouts, in which this reported was handed her ass...darn instinct fighter.
As to my own performance, I am still working on the idea of a planier viewed defence. Will try to bring plates of a manual to the next practice for review.
Same time..same place
