      Have you ever wanted to try armored combat, but maybe was a bit

      you interested in participating in either siege weapons or combat

      A new armored fighting class will be starting next Tuesday (January
      24) at the Northside Thieves Practice. This will be a slow class
      concentrating on form, stance, and movement. Armor will not be
      required for at least a month.

      If you are interested or have questions, feel free to contact me off

      I would like to offer my personal thanks to the Lady Verena for helping expand the options for beginning fighters in the Ayreton area, and would like to remind even the experienced fighters that reviewing the basics helps move past plateaus in our own training.

      As a reminder for myself and to allow others to call me on it in the coming weeks/months - the single easiest way to get better at SCA heavy fighting - helmet  time.   Get out to a practice and throw on your gear.  Sundays with Grey Gargoyles, Thieves on Tuesdays, Shire of Blackhawk does Thursdays.  For the more adventurous Wednesdays in Madison with Jaravellir (who also do a Sunday as well), Caer Anterth Mawr in Milwaukee has a Monday night practice (with Thursdays returning later this spring I believe).

      Once the weather warms up the local practices should be doubling in options for fighting.
