Date: Tuesday, September 30, 2008, 12:38 PMHi guys,
I don't have a car right now, so I wasn't planning on making crown. If I
could find a way out there, I might consider coming. There is SJSU this
weekend, so can't commit right now, i would need to check with my
rideshare down there.
If needed, i can teach historical classes in introductory capoferro or
swetnam (from my head), destreza (with puck's notes), and fabris (with
some prep). I could also probably demonstrate those three styles if
I've also got a copy of _Three Elizabethan Fencing Manuals_ that I could
lend someone, and could print out some of the other manuals if people want.
Again, i'm not sure that I will be able to make it, but if you guys need
