well, 50 strikes done. Focus is control and accuracy, strikes being done at a medium pace. Accuracy is improving, now control needs to be focused upon. I've lost my first milk bottle to a sword wound- heh. good thing we have several other plastic bottles.

My right arm feels drained from all the swinging, which means I'm not really doing it right. It should be the entire upper right side of my body, not just the arm.

Oh well - more training this evening.

Current training session - 25 minutes long, including pauses.

I'm pushing myself in a manner of speaking I guess...

Well, I've now hung a plastic 2L milk bottle from the shading at the entrance to my parents place. Lots of room for 62.5% of all basic strikes. (bonus points for guessing which ones I can't do safely)

50 strikes later (in 2 blocks of 25) and I have the long forgotten endolphins humming happily through my veins. And there's no chance of them going feral either - it was 25 minutes after a good meal.

I'm reasonably satisfied with the quality, especially having been out of practice so long.

Going for 100 strikes tomorrow (50 in the morning, 50 in the evening).

Practice, practice, practice.

All I need now is a formal organisation with a low cost out-lay and high training standards. It seems I may well not be returning to S&S for a while - a fencing helm is now required equipment. I love the styles now being taught, I just cannot afford a fencing helm at present, what with....

Yummy yummy yummy trailer.

Beowolf.

And no punches being pulled by the looks of it.

Plus, anything with Sir Anthony is going to be good, and written by written by Neil Gaiman and Roger Avery with Robert Zemeckis as director - it's going to be interesting.

It's a must see for me.
