a hit, a very palpable hit

Well, my friends, I am one step closer to being a truly kick-ass fighter.

I achieved my small sword certification from the Society of American Fight Directors last night and I am just pumped!

My partner, Dan, and I had a strong fight and we performed with enthusiasm and (I hope) humor. A few folks were testing in multiple weapons including my instructor, Ted Hewlett, who tested and passed something like five weapons. He's a machine!

As I mentioned before, I had two partners for the test--we were both doing the same scene from The Rover. Matt couldn't be there for last night's exam, so we tested this morning with a class of Harvard grad students doing their hand-to-hand. The pressure was off for me since I had already passed (they would have had to pry that certificate from my cold, dead hands), but not Matt. I felt relaxed and confident and I think we did very well.

I left before he got his results, but I'm pretty sure he's in the clear.

As for me, I can't wait to take another test and to keep kicking some pretend ass.

Congratulations, Summer! I can't wait to see you fight on the stage or on the screen!
