Some of the biggest complaints about I.33 is that it “isn’t a complete system” and that “it isn’t applicable when applied under pressure.” This class will work to start disproving these ideas, helping to create a baseline understanding of how to interpret the system as a whole as well as offer some drills/concepts to apply to sparring situations in a more practical way. By the end of the class, attendees can expect to have an understanding of how to use wards and sieges, and should have a few basic concepts that they can take and use in sword and buckler sparring or free play. No prior sword and buckler experience is necessary.
Required equipment: A sword (or something you can pretend is a sword). Ideal overall length is about 35.” A buckler (or something you can hold in your off hand). Gloves and mask recommended – they’re your hands/face, do with them what you will.
