31/3/2021 Keep a Heavy Distance!

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!
