FOOL Class/Longsword Practice
I have two items of note for the rapier community. First, I will be teaching
a class on Cut & Thrust rapier, Italian style a Fruits of Our Labour
(http://fool.lilleypress.com/). The class is at 9 am on the Saturday of the
event. Yes, I know it's brutally early but I will be there and if you have
any interest in pursuing C&T, this would be a good place to start. No extra
gear is required for the drill part of the class but the more advanced parts
of the class will require the minimum C&T gear (i.e. solid protection for
the back of the head and a minimum of padded elbows, though I recommend
Secondly, Baron Hoskuld and I will be running a longsword only practice
starting on Sunday, May 8th at the University of Guelph. The class will be
held in room 103 of the University Centre from 10 am to 12 pm. If people
wish to continue and the weather is good, we can take it outside after 12.
It is an SCA practice with SCA armour requirements. Again, this is a
practice for the use longsword so there will not be a regular rapier
component. It will be run in accordance with the rules and armour standards
for Cut & Thrust.
Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
Yours in Service
