As we move into 2014 I have decided to keep a training report for this year. The primary objective is to encourage myself towards increased mastery of mental and physical skills and to ramp up for the outdoor mountain hikes. I am now in my 53rd year and wish to "keep blasting". Recently my grown up son and his angelic 8 year old daughter have came into my life. Now as her "super grampa" I want to stay around as long as I can to nurture and protect my Clan.

Decided to tweak the sessions as I progress so that I get closer to various expressions of combative integration training. I have tweaked numbers 1 and 4 to get a synergistic drill, endurance, explosive bursts, unarmed striking, armed weapon utilising, possible single or multiple mass assault.

After yesterday's War Post session, I decided another future tweak will be that I will deploy and drill on reaching top floor level and equally I can deploy and drill on reaching downstairs back yard war post area. I expect drills 1 and 4 to kick me square in the nuts and humble me into a pathetic puddle.

Report 60 >90 minutes endurance/ intermittent explosive bursts session.

1.Combative synergistic integration drill unarmed to armed
Blade Runner stair run repeats
Up down 3 landing levels of 70 stairs

Immediate 180'degree rotation ( Fairbairn footwork melee ) to address ( attacker 2 )
deploy and drill weapons to address incoming ( attacker 2 )
Fixed blade Sgian dubh and Sgian achlais knife angles with footwork.

2. Weighted rucksack/weapons gym ring pressups
Weighted rucksack/weapons + 20 lb Bulgarian bag squats
Weighted rucksack/weapons chinup bar with bronco boot kicks
Weighted rucksack/weapons + 20lb Bulgarian bag kneeling standing up downs

3. Weighted rucksack/ weapons bulgarian bag combative footwork
Med ball ab core crunches/ defensive cover
Weighted rucksack/ weapons Ab wheel rollouts
100 (10x10) Weighted 12 lb clubbell bokken type sword men strikes

4. Combative synergistic integration drill unarmed to armed

5. 1 x 5 minute rounds 2 x 7kg dumbell circuits 6 exercises ( repeat 4 rounds)

Work and rotate through 1 to 6 above in a semi unscripted chaotic manner with combative mindset and visualisation.

Body wee bit tender
Lower intensity body recovery
30 minutes Yoga stretching
Joint mobility ROM

Skills Development

60 minutes Katana iaijutsu practise.
Preparation clearing the mind, mental attitude
Respect to the sword
Breath control, starting alertness

7 Sword postures, position, footwork and stance
Drawing cut
Cutting drills 8 directional Happo- Giri
Finishing alertness.

Pleased with today's iaijutsu practise in particular the footwork position shift during 8 direction cutting. Attributes of awareness and calm in the way of mental presence.
