Illustrations to help new students become familiar with basic stances and grips
Chemere Birkensleigh, a Victorian member of the association and a very talented illustrator, has volunteered her services to illustrate a series of basic grips, attacks and sword stances to help new students become familiar with this, sometimes, confusing array of positions.
Her first series was to show the 5 main sword stances we use in Australia. On the right there are links to 2 x A4 posters, portrait and landscape formats, plus a smaller version for mobile devices.
Chermere is now busy working on set of basic grips and attacks which we will publish in the coming months.
