I mainly fight with a two-handed broadsword. My bokken are Ambrose, Bain, and Ceolwulf. My steel swords are Droog (Friend) and Soldier. As a Crimson Chain, I have earned my proficiencies in staff and steel combat and now also train in one-handed sword with one-handed axe.

Sword fighting allows me to grow stronger in ways I could have never found for myself. I am thankful that I was given this opportunity because it's constantly changing my life for the better, affecting both my physical agility and my mental awareness.

Every test that is passed is a reminder of how much more I need to work to become a stronger person and a better fighter. There's always more to learn and there will always be more difficult challenges to overcome than what was faced before. As a Kaiden, I am always learning and growing with my students to help with their personal challenges and acheivements. Everyone's journey is different, but we can still all learn from each other.

Train with purpose.
