Strikkenwoode Sunday Fighter Practice
- Greetings to our friends in St. Carol-
Some of you may have already seen this, but I hadn't seen it posted
yet. If anyone's not going away for the holiday weekend, here's an
Sunday September 3rd
I am Sgt Istvan Toth and am new to the Shire of Strikkenwoode....I am
a veteran of the SCA however. Since I work a 2nd shift schedule I
cannot attend your usual practice.
I will start a second practice at Deming Park (in Terre Haute) on
This should give us more time to fight and help us develop better
skills. I am a fully warranted Marshal in heavy fighting but I have
just started rapier so if you want to fence we will need a rapier
marshal present. I will also send details to other groups so we can
get some fresh faces to challenge.
I want to add a little structure so here is how I hope things shake
out. Of course sometimes you just want to FIGHT so this is not a
schedule, just an outline to give us some focus.
1:00pm...pick-ups and warm ups. Also a good time to get new fighters
2:00pm...or so; we can do some actual training. I have a few things
to teach and I know others in the Shire do as well. Anything fighter
related, basics, a new move, even some of the mental game. I fit
works for you then share it.
3:00pm...tourney time. I think it is fun to end the practice with a
simple tournament. Training is done and now it is time to fight. Of
course this is not an official tournament but it will help switch us
from `practice mode' to `fight mode'.
I plan on wrapping things up by 4:00pm but as long as there is
daylight and people to fight with I will stay and play.
Also...this is not just for fighters. I will focus on Heavy fighting
most from 1:00 to 4:00 and hope that the other fighters will to but
it should be a fun afternoon at the park for everyone...a great time
to visit and also to bring new members to as well.
I hope to see you there
