Yesterday, Tom turned up on my doorstep and we started her heavy training.
We worked on the absolute basics: stances, footwork and the basic blows in the DeGrendulus system.
Last night my shoulder began to hurt. I haven’t done the warm up motion in months; which coincides with the length of time that my shoulder injury hasn’t been an issue. Either I am doing the warm up motion wrong or the warm up motion done correctly exacerbates my shoulder injury.

- Instructor throws blows at the student in slow speed.
- Student voids into and out of measure, using only good footwork.
I just found this video about pell drills, we will probably work on some of this next:
