First lengthy sequence is myself vs Sean Clark. While I'm usually pretty good at nearly any system I try and am competent enough to teach some of them, this ain't one of those! I did not have quite the same success in this. My posture is a bit broken, (too far forward and hunched) and I had a hard time getting cuts to land. Thrusting was my go-to as I try to figure out I-33 and it's ilk (including Marazzo). My goal was not to stand toe-to-toe and seek out shield binds, but rather play at a distance and do run bys, or thrusts. Any constructive comments are welcome.
John Patterson did quite well in this, and if you recognize him you'll see for yourself. 3:55
The fellow in white had never tried sword and buckler before.
The fellow in blue/white comes from an SCA cut and thrust tradition and had the most experience. Shows up at about 7, and around 7:06 destroys my right ankle. When I peeled my sock off today, blood all over. Tiny wound though.
Sean, all in black and shorter, has experience. Shows up in first bout.
