In a Darkrooms thread I discussed why I was going to be beginning a track on the historic Quarterstaff methods, starting with the most recent and working backwards. Due to issues revolving around students being on the Disabled List, fall season responsibilities, and some who have COVID concerns, we have not done the Quarterstaff and, instead focused on other training for those classes which students could/would attend.

However, I still believe that this is important material so I decided to make some videos. I'm planning on a total of three videos, each one covering the basics of a different Quarterstaff system. Here are the first two:

Boy Scouts Master at Arms 1926 Merit Badge Quarterstaff:

Phillips-Wolley and Allanson-Winn Quarterstaff system from 1989 book BROAD-SWORD and SINGLE-STICK:

Nice hat Indy
Two different hats. Look close.

And I'm thinking of doing four vids. I'm planning on a McCarthy method as the third but I just purchased a republished copy of a little-known and comparatively rare late 19th C. self defense book by an American (immigrant) named Mostery, aka "El Rubio Bravo" and his quarterstaff method.

Just some blush, maybe a bit of foundation. I mean, look at me... if I got any whiter I'd be mistaken for a corpse.

Any chance you could record it in landscape instead of portrait.
When I expand it I get portrait.

So, that's what you look like, now. I always pictured you still looking like Uncle Fester from that old avatar where you're chopping a chunk of wood with a knife.

No. I have no plans on re-recording them. First, it's not intended to be a professional production in any way, shape, or form. I recorded on my phone, used free <cough> "editing" software to punch in the pics and text, and didn't write up a script. The fact that I did two takes on the Phillipps-Wolley video irritated me greatly. Second, these videos are only intended to get the material to my students and the few that I've shared them with. For that reason (and others), I set the videos to "Unlisted" instead of "Public." They're not searchable and don't show up on my youtube page.

Besides, it gave me space to plunk in those pictures. :)

I'm still Uncle Festery. I just have a Van **** now. Here's a little bit clearer pic from a few years back. Tall guy is a friend who does SCA.

You're kidding me, right? Once the video is shot, turning the phone does nothing. It certainly doesn't "record it in landscape instead of portrait" as you asked. The only way to do that is to re-record it. And I'm not planning on doing that.

You mistook my post.

Don't blame me.
You said three vids so you've got one to go.
Do your students a favor and turn your phone around.
They'll be grateful.

I'll consider it.

So far, they don't seem to care. In fact, you're the only person to mention it.

I wanted to be nice, offer some constructive criticism.
Not be a stick in the mud.

They care. They just know it's a complete waste of time trying to tell you that you're wrong.

Yeah, you look more like your old avatar, more, in this picture. The hat in the others made a big difference.
