It is my pleasure to announce that, after sadly missing the 2012 event, I'll be again teaching at the WWOC (Hannover).
More, this time I'll be happily teaching with the assistance of fellow JdP instructor Patrick Scheler, whose skill, knowledge and enthusiasm will be energizing to both myself and all the trainees attending class.
Here's a short description of the 3 classes we shall be holding. Hope to see some of you there
1 - HISTORICAL EVOLUTION OF JOGO DO PAU
An in-depth intro into the historical evolution of Jogo do Pau's technique and tactics, together with an analysis of parrying refinemnet strategies.
2 - OUTNUMBERED COMBAT
A presentation of the main guidelines that govern outnumbered combat, including its application to long swords, such as the Montante.
3 - COMPETITIVE JOGO DO PAU FORMAT
A comprehensive analysis of Jogo do Pau's competitive rule set and combat tactics, including free play sparring.
Hope to see many of you there and, until then, wish you all the very best!
