Drill Wednesday 9/7/2011


First, what time do people want it to be?

Second, for those who do not know drill is where we come to get better. It's focus is not on having battles, but rather on specific instruction to improve specific areas of fighting. In the past this has been accomplished through a roundtable in between different exercises. While very inclusive, these roundtables can slow the pace of drill. I do not wish to end them, but I do wish to make them more efficient. I would like to see roundtables broken into small groups as appropriate facilitated by a veteran, given that there is now a great significant difference in number of years of fighting between the oldest vets and youngest new players (old and young referring to years fighting).

I, personally, would like to see this first drill run as the following:

:00: Warm up jog, small group stretches.
:15: Small groups, edge control exercise.
:30: Small groups, shot power exercise.
:45: Roundtable in small groups
:50: Exercise on primary round table concern
:00: Water
:05: Small groups, weapon introductions/exercises (Reds, spears, sword & board, two-stick by group)
:20: Switch groups, weapon introductions/exercises (Reds, spears, sword & board, two-stick by group)
:35: Switch groups, weapon introductions/exercises (Reds, spears, sword & board, two-stick by group)
:50: Roundtable in small groups
:00: Battle
:??: End

Is this format going to be for everyone? No, and I recognize that. However, I feel it makes sense to have drill be a more drilling atmosphere than a "let's just have more battles" atmosphere.

I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions.

I approve of this message.

Also, it looks like, due to work, I might be around for a drill or two. If this is the case I'll know soon.
