Focused on foot work and shield drills. Remember the poem? "More shield lifts! More shield lifts! Till your arms feels like molten lead. The penalty for a slow left arm is a crease along your head!" I've got a five pound weight that I've attached to the basket.
I also focused on my butt. For that final snap, the drive from the hip should be running from the feet to the butt. It's the difference between blah and something a Duke will take. On a forehand the right cheek clenches, for the wrap it's the left.
Well, it seems like emt_hawk is challenging everyone. osgkar now wants a turn. I tell you, at this rate, it'll be a conga line by time we hit mudthaw. diablu? gamiris? Who's next?
I have to pound out my shield. The blocking edge is furled pretty badly. Hey, gamiris? Should I heat it up with a torch before pounding it out? Or just do it cold? Or just wait for adult supervision?
Tomorrow? Weigh in.
