Being the fanatic for Mediaeval History that I am, Full plate aroumr seems amazing.Though I love the idea of having my own Full Plate Armour I don't think I could really obtain one, so a Crusader Knight suit of arms seems to be better for me- also I admire this period the most. I was wondering if you know anywhere in Scotland that has a either a blacksmith or anyone with such skill to teach a real novice like me to make chainmail, the conical helm etc. My last efforts resulted in a large lump of steel that was a mail shirt. Thanks Yours Sincerly Raymond

Very interesting site. Have you ever had a friendly sparring match between a person who practices any of the Eastern armed martial arts like Kenjutsu and a person who practices European martial arts? That will reveal a lot about the difference in fighting strategy between different cultures and provide more insights into understanding martial history. It will be of interest not only to martial arts students but also to history buffs. If you ever organize such a bout, please update this website with a description and videos.

Name: Henry Ellis Comment: The "Controversy" with the British Aikido Board is now over.Mediation meeting held with the British Governments Sport England/BAB/Ellis - 6th/July/2004. The BAB have offered a full apology to Mr Ellis, which was accepted. The BAB also admitted that the tarished bronze statue was awarded to Mr Jack Poole to "APPEASE" him. They also admitted that Mr Poole could only corroborate his history from 1968 and not 1952 as claimed. Visit. or for more information. We will now put all of our efforts into the celebration of 50 years of British Aikido at London's Crystal Palace 14th May 2005. This will be a celebration of the inception of Aikido to Britain by the legendary master Kenshiro Abbe sensei in 1955. We invite all Aikidoists to join with us on this great day. Henry Ellis

Congratulations to Mishaƫl Lopes Cardozo and Kenneth Smolders from Haarlem, the Netherlands! (Haarlem is also my home town, you see...) They won the title in the first European Championship Medieval Sword Fighting (Italy, June 2004). To honor their deeds I've put a photo and some text (taken from the oldest newspaper in the world "Haarlems Dagblad", picture by Poppe de Boer) on my web site: (just click the link "list of updates in June 2004).

Thank you very much for providing this resource for all and sundry; I have found it very useful in my own training (particularly the manuals). What is the opinion of AEMMA on the usefulness of dancing (the dancing styles of the time, particularly) as an aid to teaching proper footwork? Thanks again.

Dear colegues, I am enthusiast of western medieval martial arts, and your organizacion is very interestig for me. I'd like your site, wich is very informative and it is sipmle to find what you need. However almoust all video files does'nt open or download in any way. I tried to open and download them using various software, but it was usseles. I think that it is error in programing. Do you plan to mend that problem in near future or maybe I can download video files from other place?

Hi, really interesting page! I am jsy learning longsword techniques here in Finland. I did have one question on the homepage. In the manuscript depiction of a trebuchet, which is purported to come from a bible, why does it include what appears to be Arabic script underneath? A bible in Arabic?? Anyone like to comment on this? Best regards, Kevin.
