longsword sparring (again)

Postby Axel » 15 Jun 2008 20:40

let me know if you think I am spamming our videos on this forum and I'll stop (and sorry in advance), I post them since I know people enjoy sparring videos and I really like to hear what people from other groups with other ways of sparring and practicing thinks about what we do, good stuff and definitely what you think sucks and why, but perhaps you are getting tired of us by now :) .

From today:

Anders vs Robert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb80zOmGlTE (watch Anders two cuts at 1.46-1.55, his intense studies in body kinesthetics are clearly paying off) :)

Anders vs Robert 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuCraeJLuYY

Robert vs Scott: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujJYbIxUOww

Robert vs Scott 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3FgdooB1n8

Axel vs Anders: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki5PZyRJsAA

Axel vs Anders 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tzO5rqQbUI

The clips are from today (sunday) and is a hungover tribute to the fallen heroes of our national soccer team.

Hello Axel.

Always good to see sparring videos. So keep them coming :) Hmmm perhaps we should try it also :P

BUT:

about the nylon wasters! Have you thought about doing something about their smooth/"slippery" edges. We simply don't use them anymore because we find it "almost" impossible to work proberly from the bind with them.

Perhaps roughen them up somehow?

Best wishes

We have discussed it, but not really experimented with it. All the different tools affect sparring in different ways so it's always a compromise. But since we use feder, blunts, nylons and shinai the mix takes care of the different problems.

As Anders said, we have talked about it, but my new waster is a bit rough and some of my practice partners complains about it when I pull off a draw cut, that it tears their skin.

Many of them just received new gambesons today though, so perhaps I should try it, or add some tape or similar to the edges (perhaps that kind of tape you use to make sure your feet don't start to tear and bleed when you grapple barefoot on a rough mat, I have a lot of that..).
