Whip Demonstration at Ratha Con 2015
The strike. Tom and I really did this impromptu, and we really didn't get a chance to "calibrate." After one demonstration, he came up to me and said "you know...I'm fine...I'm not hurt...but there was a strike you made to my arm that I sure did feel!" I was just demonstrating a technique, and not putting any strength behind my cracks. The sleeves of that jerkin are made of 4 oz. leather. The whip is a VERY powerful tool, so you should ALWAYS be careful!
