For those who have been waiting so patiently, here is the basic translation of material from Elashvili.  It's rather confusing in many places, so I will be posting modern photos, video, and descriptions of the positions and actions, both those derived directly from Elashvili and those that come from other Georgian sources over the coming weeks.  Great thanks go to Niko Abazadze, Vakhtang Kiziria, Gotscha Lagidze, and გიორგი ლაცაბიძე for technical content.  In addition, Alex Maghlakelidze and Giorgi Khelashvili provided much background information and photographs that appear in some posts.  As always, many thanks to those who have helped make this translation and our interpretation a reality.  Jim Emmons and Alex Spreier first and foremost, but also, Richard Tillman, Sage Derting, Sean Hayes, Manouchehr Moshtagh Khorasani, Jose Amiel Angeles,  & Da'Mon Stith.
