Note to self, taking three weeks off is a little too long. I had a rather punishing practice on the 14th. I did my 50 lunges, and then worked on my dagger parries, we were practicing moving sword and dagger as one. Then I started practicing with Don Godfrey. It was rather punishing, but I learned some more about defeating beats. I’m currently working on my footwork in conjunction with bringing my tip back online.
My new dagger is great, I”m loving it, but I need to add some leather to it before Winter’s Tourney, otherwise the grip loosens too easily.
Winter’s tourney is tomorrow, so I expect for all of this to be put to the test. I’m hoping for a round robin so I can get a lot of practice in against various opponents.
The big one is Investiture, which is in four weeks, but I only have four oportunities to practice before then. Here’s hoping.
Tomorrow is going to be my first time fighting in a tourney in almost two years, and my first time fighting in a championship in over two years.
