Tuesday Drill 3/5 – March of the Drills

There is an old Chinese proverb that says “A beginner practices until they get it right, a master practices until they can’t get it wrong.”  Drills and practice help us narrow our focus down to specific skills and practice them until they are mastered.  The Iron-warrior system that we teach is built on the foundation of fitness, skill work, and nutrition.  However, it is up to the individual to build upon that foundation with dedication and hard work.  We are here to support, teach, and train.  Come give one of our classes for free and start your new adventure as an Iron-warrior.


Figure 8 Downward Strike Drill

This drill is designed to practice the downward strikes at the neck and shoulder.  The strike comes in at a 45 degree angle.  When practicing this strike on a straight pell like the one in the video it is normal for the sword to slide down.  Make sure your initial contact is edge on at a 45 degree angle to the pell.  Be sure to over exaggerate your movements as you learn this drill.  It’s about teaching your muscles timing and firing to add speed and power to your strikes.
