Single sticks and sweat

A surprisingly warm day for the workshop today, and although the prof was somewhat hampered by an injured knee he kept us working hard through the day. Lots of interesting ideas for using compound moulinet cuts with both rapier and sabre, with the sabre being supremely effective for changing the line of attack to work round a parry.

We finished the day with half an hour of intense single stick free play, with a few good thwacks to be heard and by the end of it we were all sweaty bunnys. Hoo-rah!
