Thor's Refuge Stick Jock Club

Postby Orko » Sun May 09, 2010 9:04 pm

I, Orko 'Laser Eyes', am officially starting the Thor's Refuge Stick Jock Club. This thread is to promote the discussion of fighting, and so I can feel like I'm helping, even when i'm not.

Recommended Reading:

For your viewing pleasure:
E Sam's Fighting Video Gallery

The Warlord Sports page has a lot of helpful articles, and also has Sir Brennon and Sir Spyn's Fighting Definition videos on them, which are good to mentally connect to the Back to Basics class.

Any questions or comments, post them here. Enjoy.

In addition to Orko's resources, the Belegarth Fighting Forum (definitely check out Kenneth's blogs) and the Dagorhir Fighting Forum are helpful if you can apply them to Amtgard. Also, Orko linked to notes from SKBC, but here are some more (click the link under Name, then the link under notes):SKBC's Website's class notes.
Here is a video of Sir Arthon sparring with some people.

I noticed in the Spyn and Brennon video that they have a stance my brain doesn't quite understand. They sword is parallel to the body, with the tip facing the ground. It doesn't seem like a good stance because it block out shot options. Thoughts?

It's an arm bait.

Have you not seen me use this same stance? As cadogan said, it is an arm bate, and a quick snap range control. It is also a recoil position for a high-to-low shot that crosses the body.

Pretty sure I've dropped the tip of one or both of my swords and given you the "What you got, boy?" look before, Orko. I wanted you to take a wild/over-extended swing at something so I can try to snap a sword up and punk-a-bitch.

However since I'm a flailing nut-case a lot of the time, I tend to fail. :P

The more you say things like this to Jeff, the more I have to punch him in the kidneys to keep his ego in check.

Please, won't somebody think of Jeff's kidneys?
