Getting a feel for how it moves.
Timing with the feet and keeping the shoulders relaxed.
Two handed horizontal arc strikes working through the 8 angles, forward, back, sides and 45°s (no jumps or ducking tonight).
Led on to working with the large shield to feel the impact (and the bounce back!) of a simulated gut strike. Proper posture, balance, keeping the shoulders low and relaxed. Correcting to minimise/ delete any wind up.
I’ve got a bad habit of dropping my lead wrist behind the strike, I’ll be working on that!
