background info

Day 1

Michael Seiser in the ring with Florian Frandl.

After the morning introduction we went outside, straight into the snow. The weather forecast told us that it can be the only sunny day on this week - so it was really great fun being outside building words with tools like boards, skiing sticks, paint brushes, dippers, bottles and not to forget our fingers and hands.

We started some very short 5 minute test battles to get the spirit of the coming days. 'Throwing' and 'groundwork' were the words of today. The snow is really wet and heavy, but tomorrow we go up to the mountain and hope to find more powder like snow there.

Pray for a good weather for this week. Don't miss the minibus on tomorrow morning!

Speed is what you need. What happens if you only have 15 secons to make your typographic move? How does your opponent react to this? How quick is he? Remember, if you are quicker than your opponent, you have a much bigger change of beating him on typographic points.
