Sword drills

I’d been doing a good job of exercising on the stationary bike every morning. 15 minutes per day for the first week; 20 for the second. While away from home over the holidays, I thought I’d take along a Hollowearth Sword, and do some drills out of Christian Tobler’s Fighting with the German Longsword.

Things I learned:

  • Sword drills are a lot more work than an exercise bike but don’t earn as much Apple watch green ring credit.
  • My body really doesn’t like the left vom tag guard. It will do almost anything to do something else when I try to assume it.
  • Wear gloves for drills.
