A Constraints-Led Approach to Swordplay w/ Bryant Coston & Seneca Savoie

Today I'm joined by Bryant Coston and Seneca Savoie, Historical European Martial Artists who specialize in coaching the sword at their club, Arena Weapon Arts. In this episode, Bryant and Seneca recount their journey from a traditional technique and drill-based sword coaching, to games-based practice, and finally arriving at a full-bore constraints-led approach. They go into detail about how they approach practice design, curriculum development, as well as coaching and correction. We also talk at length about representativeness and how previous experience in other skills can form "attractor states" that influence the way you move when acquiring and developing a newer skill. Of note also is their account of how training with more aliveness actually lowered their injury rates instead of making it worse. So if you're excited to jump in, hit the subscribe button on your podcatcher and enjoy the show. --- Join the email list now: combatlearning.com/newsletter --- Find Bryant & Seneca: Website: https://www.academyofwma.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ArenaWeaponArts/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/arenaweaponarts/ --- Produced by Micah Peacock Intro Theme by Micah Peacock Outro Music is Synergy by Juche

Combat Learning: Science for Better Martial Arts Training
Combat Learning is about radically improving you as a teacher and learner of martial arts using the ecological dynamics and constraints-led approach to training. We explore the little-known frontiers of skill adaptation, perceptual-motor learning, and performance science for combat sports such as jiu jitsu, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate, muay thai, and more.
