So I just tried the Molinet+Samurai+thrust as a part of my workout with my 12 pounder.

HOLY CRAP these are difficult! Shocked You make it look easy Phayze. They killed me, but I love them! After doing the first one it felt like I had never picked up the hammer before. I guess maybe it's just using different muscles than I have been working out.

I ended up doing a bunch of these, some of your water pumps, some no names and some slightly modified no names (someone here brought them up. Stop your forearm at parallel to the floor, then lift the hammer head up with your wrist to perpendicular to the floor). and some shoveling. To be honest though, I spent lots of time panting and resting after the samurai's!

Thanks Phayze and Reinhard!

Edit: Oh, feeling a bit barbarian I tried the full Molinet a well, but I just couldn't get it coordinated. I'll have to check out your video again.

Hey that's awesome, Finn! I'm glad you had fun with it. Smile

In all fairness, the main reason I make it looks easy is because I'm using a dinky little 6# hammer - much less inertia to work against than you've got! I barely have the nerve to try the samurai variations with my 10#!

Yeah, the coordination for the moulinet is a bit weird. I learned it with a wooden practice sword originally, which hurts a lot less when you invariably thwack yourself so you might consider testing the water with a broom or something like that. Let me know how it comes along!
