This class takes plays and concepts presented in M.S. I.33 and applies them to drills created to help our performance in the ring, specifically with binding and trusting. We will be primarily working actively with partners in drills, so intensity varies from medium to high. No deep knowledge of I.33 is needed to attend, but participants should be familiar with buckler and how to use the arming sword and buckler in tandem in order to derive value. As the class title suggests, we will be focusing on working from guards and wards from the lower quadrants.
Equipment requirement: mask, gloves suitable for sparring, throat protection, arming sword, buckler
