Mid week practices


Midweek practices had always originally been intended to be more training and skill development times, versus Saturday practice where we play more games. To some extent it has been that.

I've been doing some research Dag appropriate and applicable exercises, warm ups, and skills we can start incorporating into weekday practices. Perhaps organizing it into something a little more structured than what we currently have now.

Before I continue I want to know what you all want to get out of weekday practices. Is there a specific type of skill you want to develop? General stamina and strength building? Technique development? Group fighting? Want to learn how to using ____type weapon? Let me know and I will start gearing my search towards that.

Re: Mid week practices


Duckie, the best way to build up your stamina is to run. Get a good pair of shoes and run around a city block. Do this every day. Build up your distance every month or so.

I know at face value, the idea of running sounds horrible, but trust me. Get a good MP3 player and just hit it hard. Every day. You'll be SO glad you did.

Re: Mid week practices


Hey everyone, I plan to come to Wednesday practices every week this semester since I have a class that ends at 4:50 that day.

As some of you may be aware, I have some experience training people for Dagorhir fighting, as well as coaching wrestling (less experience there); in all honesty, helping people become better fighters is one of my favorite things.

With this in mind, I would be happy to volunteer to tackle skills and conditioning for the upcoming season, including helping people get familiarized with gym equipment (my current plan is to go to practice and then hit the gym immediately afterward), and I'd like to be a resource for people who need information on different styles and techniques.

Also, don't pay too much attention to my YouTube videos, since they're a little outdated. Watch these instead:

Everything from "blocking drill" on down will be applicable to Dagorhir. They're using lighter weapons, but with practice you can make Dag weapons move more or less the same way (it helps to have strong forearms).

Re: Mid week practices


And a question--are we doing Wednesday practices? Or are we waiting until it is brighter to resume them?

Re: Mid week practices


This sounds great Magnus, I'm very interested in your tutelage!
As far as Wednesday Practices, I can only speak for myself, but I get out of work around 5:00-5:30 and by the time I get over there it is dark. I personally am shooting for Saturdays from here on out. I hope to see you out there too.

Re: Mid week practices


I'm with Smitty on this. Would you be able to do this on Saturdays as well? I'd love to get into shape and lose all the extra baggage I brought home from the holidays as well as work on stuff to improve my Dag fighting.

Re: Mid week practices


Yes, I am also planning to be there on Saturday, though usually Wednesdays will be easier since Saturday is when most of our rugby games get played.

If I really luck out in the postal service department, I should have my own weapons here by Saturday, but it may not be until next Saturday that I get them, so loaner weapons will be the order of the day.

Sounds like we've both got to wait on USPS. The sword Charlee ordered me for Christmas finally arrived at her house, after we came back to Tallahassee :P Getting that shipped up here ASAP
