This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll have our third installment of Leckuchner’s Messer, working our way through the windings and other post-Zornhau material. ‘Seeking the openings’ will continue be the theme for most of the plays in this class, and hopefully it will prove useful for everyone in attendance (and not just with Messer). So far, for my part, it has given me a new perspective on what it means to work from the bind, as going from one ‘peak’ (as Leckuchner refers them) to another seems a natural series of transitions when using this weapon.

See you all on Sunday.
