This week at Crossing Fight School, it is once again Fight Week. In fact, it will be Fight Week for the next two classes in preparation for the Pennsylvania HEMA Open.

As always, we’ll be running through some fight exercises and having extended sparring in an effort to sharpen our instincts, refine our skills, and prepare as best we can for the competition ahead. I encourage you all to address whatever elements of your fighting might be in need of attention, and focus your efforts accordingly.

I would also recommend that you spar with a mask on, as the tournament still has a mask mandate (because of the status of the venue, they cannot make vaccinations compulsory). This will ensure that you remain used to fighting at an intense level while wearing one, and should also prevent it from being a distraction when the time comes.

See you all on Sunday.
