Shield bash!

Hey remember that I joined Bastion in the early part of the year? It’s Historical European Martial Arts aka HEMA and yes, it’s sword fighting fun.

I graduated basics too then I CONTINUED because it’s fun.

The next basics intake is from 23rd to 30 June 2019! An introduction is just $10 to see if you’d like it and you can join at their website here.

I improved since the basics class just a bit since I don’t stall too long after the first two moves.

Week 3 of sword and buckler. We’ve done steps 1-6 with the 7th position. And now putting it all together. #hema

My current class is about the sword and buckler and really. It’s a lot of trying to increase arm strength so I can hold the buckler for longer periods of time.

My favourite move so far in the class is the shield grab though.

Technically I think the current favourite moves I like so far have to do with grabbing swords or the shield!

Anyway, this is meĀ jio-ing you guys in case you say I neverĀ jio to try this out. Remember to check the dates since classes begin in 12 week cycles for each ‘course’.

If you miss the beginning you might have to wait for the next round. Also if you guys do sign up for basics, FEEL FREE TO CHALLENGE ME for a spar when you ‘graduate’ at the end of 12 weeks.
