Let me know if this provides sufficient clarity:
>> Rapier at FOOL includes:
>> Saturday 10 am - 11 am: Dagger class with Eyrny
Active class on Eyrny's favourite techniques with the dagger. Come in
full kit. Not based on a particular period master.
>> Saturday 11 am - noon: Pick-up fights
>> Sunday 10 am - noon: Sword & Buckler class by Giovanni
The class description on the site says: i.33 Sword and Buckler An
introduction to the basics of the oldest recorded fighting style.
>> Sunday 1 pm: Using triangles while parrying: making contact with your
>> opponent's blade, and keeping it while you kill them (Eyrny)
Again an active class, come in kit. Not based on a particular period master.
I thoroughly admire the study of period masters, but I've only
frustrated myself in attempting it from books. My classes will be
based on what I do.

- Life and work has been keeping me busy, and I am slow to organize
rapier at FOOL. Thus we have the following:
We have space both Saturday and Sunday from 10 - 5. Saturday from 10
- 12 Baron Giovanni will be teaching Harnessfecten (for more details:
I will be teaching German Longsword through the wonders of technology.
We will watch The Longsword of Johannes Liechtenauer as taught by the
Agilitas.tv, on a laptop, pause and work through the exercises,
discuss, and repeat. (Information on the video:
bring a 2-handed sword if you have one. Your arms and armour will
dictate how you practice.
Saturday at 12:30, all fencers please meet to discuss the best times
to have tournaments and when to have the longsword class. I'll try to
accommodate interest in the rapier classes and tournaments and other
classes. (If you aren't available Sat at 12:30, please email me.)
