You will be given a few different weapons to try in the Sword Cutter activity, it can be a fun and exciting opportunity to test your skills with different types of weapons.
Here are a few tips for using each of the weapons:
- Swords: You will be given two swords to try, you may want to start with one and see how it feels in your hand. Pay attention to the weight and balance of the sword, as well as the length and width of the blade. This will help you determine which sword you feel most comfortable and confident using. Once you have chosen your preferred sword, you can begin slicing and chopping the squash as described in my previous response.
- Spear: A spear can be a bit more challenging to use in the Sword Cutter activity, as it is a longer and heavier weapon. To use a spear effectively, it is important to focus on your balance and grip. Hold the spear with both hands, one near the base of the shaft and the other near the middle, and keep your feet shoulder-width apart for good stability. When you are ready to strike the squash, aim for a spot near the top and use a downward thrusting motion to drive the spear into the squash. Be sure to keep your hands and fingers out of the way to avoid accidents.
