Way of the sword

Valid hit areas with sabre We went with Kerttu to a fencing lesson for the first time yesterday. The sabre course feels interesting, and the connections to Kendo, the other sword sport I’ve practiced are definitely visible.

A very small course at Ylioppilasmiekkailijat, so we practically get private instruction.

Before Kendo I’ve also practiced Iaido, the art of drawing the Japanese sword, and of course Viking swordfighting. Kerttu has some experience with the foil.
