Wherein my friends and myself perpetrate violence on helpless bottles
Sunday is my day as a rule. I spend the week working with other people but on Sunday I get to close up shop and have my training partners over, and we get to work on improving ourselves.
This Sunday Steve, Chris and Cole showed up on my doorstep with an unexpected case of water bottles.
They figured that this might be the last time this year that we could do some cutting.
I have always thought that if you are going to work with blades you really need to actually cut things from time to time. It will telll you more truth about your technique than a lot of other things.
A swords edge is a pretty small surface and without the proper feedback it is sometimes hard to know how well you are really doing.
