@AspiringLuddite center-grips just remind me that I have no upper-body strength hahaha
My upper body strength is ... not great;-)
I've been fighting strapped heater and I think it was good for me. With center-grip, I'm able to do a lot of things which cross-over from rapier, and not having that option for a decade or so probably helped me avoid developing some bad habits.
@AspiringLuddite I just fight with a bastard sword all the time 🤷♀️
Greatsword for me for the first, hmm, 20 years or so. (Although really it was mostly spear at wars for the second decade.) Then I finally found someone who explained strapped heater in a way I could understand. So, about a decade of that. Now I may shift to a center grip.
Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
