Instructors & Workshops
Slovenian wrestling champion, accomplished academic and a very nice person who knows how to keep his feet on the ground.
In this workshop we shall focus on techniques from the ”leg hook” position or ”Haken” as it is known in the sources. These techniques are featured prominently in 16th century wrestling manuals and we shall cover material from Auerswald, Wurm and Goliath. The aim is to provide an overview of possibilites from the leg hook position including attacks, combinations, counters and responses to those coutners so that the participants will be able to successfully implement Haken into their personal repertoire of techniques.
The workshop is primarily aimed at experienced practicioners looking for new tools to add to their wrestling arsenal. Some degree of familiarity with fundamental wrestling movements as well as a basic understanding of hip throws are required to get the most out of the workshop.
As for equipment, you can bring a wrestling jacket if you wish to practice the techniques with clothing grips.
This workshop will not focus on any specific manual or source, but will be an opportunity for me to show you some of my favourite techniques and the ones I find most useful, particulary in a competitive setting. We’ll cover grip fighting, set-ups, control positions, how to chain attacks together and everything else needed to employ them successfully either in a friendly sparring match or a tournament.
All skill levels welcome. Jackets optional.
