Friday Night Fighter Practice

Post  Izec on Wed May 13, 2009 8:18 pm

After some discussion we thought it might be a good idea to have a weekly Friday Night fighter practice in Round Rock. Basically, it will be held at Old Settler's Park next to the Dell Diamond in Round Rock. In that Google Map link you will turn onto Harrell Parkway, that is the main road through the park.

Within the park we are meeting at the Lakeview Pavilion. If you are coming from Hwy 79 the Lakeview Pavilion will be on your right past the soccer fields. Keep in mind that he sign pointing to the Lakeview Pavilion will be on the left side of the road. If you are coming from Old Settler's Blvd/Kiphen Rd the Lakeview Pavilion will be on your left, and the sign pointing to it will be on the right side of the road. If you are worried that you won't be able to find the place PM me and I'll slide you my cell #..

We'll be starting the practice at about 9 pm and running possibly up to the closing time of the park, which is 12am. The plan is that this isn't going to be like a normal fight day where we just play Dagorhir games, but, instead, to have actual discussion and teaching on technique, tactics, and more of a chance to learn and put everything into practice. Sure, it'll eventually end up with sparring/ditching, but I just thought it would be a good idea to try to foster more discussion on fighting and provide an opportunity to work with and practice the various things we learn from each other.


------------------

Also, as another option for more opportunities to fight and get more practice, there is an Amtgard fighter practice that takes place in the exact same place on Thursdays. They meet at about 7-8pm.

I know that three of the guys here will make it. Possibly a fourth, I'll talk to everyone about it.

I'm not sure if we are going to do it every Friday. As it stands now this is kind of a trial run to see how it goes. I might even have a couple of Amtgard guys coming out. A few of them were interested in giving Dagorhir a try, so they might show.

Update:

It seemed to me that the fighter practice was a great success. We had as many (if not more) people there for the practice as we get at the park. Plus, I think the sword and board discussion went well. I hope you peeps learned something. If not, well, that means my dirty tricks are still my own precious secrets.

Also, we had a couple of suggestions. First off was that we would go over more two or more fighters working together. I don't have a whole lot of info there, so we can try going over it this coming Friday after the single sword discussion.

The other suggestion was that we have the attendees think up some fighting discussion points and make a presentation of sorts. And don't worry if you feel that you don't have any information to share, the idea is mostly to come up with talking points and have everyone share any info and ideas they may have.

Hope to see you there.

Alrighty, well last week due to lower attendance we just kind of took it easy went over a little florentine, but mostly we ended up talking about 2 versus 1 and 2 versus 2. No one suggested a topic for this coming fighter practice, so if anyone has anything they want more information on specifically then just post it and we'll see what we can do.

If anything I want to work on defense with all types of weapons. What good parry would look like? What the perfect spot on a weapon to block with to allow you to counterattack. Anything else helpful in this area of fighting.

It might be helpful as well to record these lessons for others like the ones they have on youtube.

If someone wants to take the video, edit it, and post it then they can. I might even be able to provide notes if I have them. I'm kind of camera shy, especially when speaking, but I think getting the info out there for others takes precedence over my bashfulness.

Hey everybody, I forgot to mention this last Friday, but I'm not going to be able to make it this coming Friday night, July 3rd. You guys have fun.

I will be at the field in Manor on Saturday, the 4th, though. See you all there.

Back from Los Vegas and I still have my shirt, but I caught the flu or a bad cold and have had an 102 fever last three days, so I am not going to fight this weekend at all. Hope you guys have fun fighting.

OK...gonna try this again and hope RL doesn't interfere this time. Will anyone be practicing this week and, if so, will there be loaner gear available? Also, is this a garbed get-together? If all goes well, I will be making the trip from Fort Hood.

Hey guys, sorry that I haven't been able to make it to the last few Friday Nights. In case you guys didn't know, I got a new job and now Friday nights are completely out for me for the foreseeable future. Maybe my schedule will change eventually, but as it stands now you guys will just have to have fun without me. *sad clown face* Have fun guys!

Sad Clown Face is creepy.
Everything's fallin apart without the Bronzehammer dudes. We're reaching a near-anarchal stage of leadership.
Actually, we're just kinda dinking around and talking more than usual.
