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.

(Note: please consider these illustrations as guides only and follow any specific directions given by your instructor)
