We teach a complete fighting system specifically designed for medieval combat, both armored and unarmored fighting. Our system is called the Iron-Warrior System and consists of three parts: fitness, skill work, and nutrition. For the month of March, we are posting free training drills as a sneak-peek into your skill work pillar for our Iron-Warrior System.
Circle Drill #2
This drill is taking the footwork taught from the Saw-tooth Drill and shifting it to a circle instead of a line. This drill is still focusing on training a fighter how to switch their feet in a fight. Keep in mind drills are designed to work a single focus point or single skill. Once mastered these skills combine into a system. For this drill fighters will start with their dominant foot forward and the non-dominate foot back. They will step back with their dominant foot, both feet with be square to the center point of the circle. Next step forward with the non-dominate foot. At this point, the fighter should be in a fighting stance with a non-dominant foot forward. Step forward with your dominant foot. The fighter should be in a square stance close to the center point of the circle. Last step back with your non-dominate foot. The fighter should now be in the same stance they started in. Repeat these steps as you go around the circle.
