Happy Easter to all the Known World from the Heavy Fighters of Ad Flumen Caerulum!
Because of rigid Covid-19 measures in Austria you have to keep a distance of 2 metres to other persons. Under usual conditions we would have demonstrated this “benchmark” at our weekly heavy fighters practise. But as a matter of fact, all sport sites are still closed in Austria. So we will show you the meaning of a save Corona distance.
Many heavy fighting concepts deal with distance. They differ between close-combat zones, where you can smell your opponents breath (definitely contagenious), a normal single-hand-combat distance (you can hit your opponent with your weapon and with aerosoles) and a wider distance, where you need at least a half-step to reach your opponent. Personal experiences and estimations may fool you: 2 metres are far more than you may think. So stay in far distance and stay safe!
Whilst the new Covid-19 Lockdown preventy heavy Fighting, we take a look in our heavy fighters archive. We detected a lot of reenacted quotes, taken from Shakespeare´s greatest plays. So enjoy our “Heavy Shakespeare Reenactment Gallery” (to be continued).
As part of Austrian lockdown measures all sports involving physical contact are forbidden until the end of November. We will see, if there will be any heavy fighters practise in 2020. Stay safe, stay at home. Good luck everyone.
