Thanks Roger.
This is what happens when practicing without hand guards.. inexperienced guys like me get hit in the hand. Any of those hits with a wooden weapon would be a broken bone, at a time i got a glove, because even with the padded staffs that begun to feel after a few hits.
I can never go that fast with Luis using wood weapons. Must practice better timings, speed, posture... the usual:)

Hi Frederico,

I think it looks pretty good.

Where did you get the padded staves from? Did you make them or can they be bought off the shelf somewhere? Thanks.

Cheers,

Bill

Hi Bill,
these staffs were made by masters Russo and Mota, with tubes foam and cloth, they work much better than other alot more expensive ones we used before, but require a little more padding, we didn't even use head protection here because it was a more controlled practice, but it is necessary for full speed sparing.
