Great site. I've been a heavy fighter in the SCA for 15 years now and I think this is a great idea. Have been interested in live steel fighting for some time, however, I am concerned about safety. Would love to start such a group here. Have a couple of interested friends, including my wife. What help/suggestions can I get??

I have been doing medieval combat for eight years in the Society for Creative Anachronism and this is the most thought-out approach to sword training I have seen yet. I am interested in seeing how well it works, any takers? I, too, envision our art to be as widespread as many oriental or other "extreme" arts, do you need any help?

Very nice site, I was super happy to see a Canadian Orginization that studies European Martial Arts. I have been studying on my own and with my wife in the Long Sword and Sword and Shield for about a year now. Most of my knowledge has come from John Clements Books on Medieval Swordsmanship (very good book). My Army Unit trains out of Moss Park Armouries so I'll have to come by some time to visit. PS check out my friend Bill Feduns web site "The South Tower Armouring Guild" at www.southtower.on.ca and let me know what you think of his custom made Battle Ready Piece". (I'm trying to decide on that or a Del-Tin 2142???) Give me a shout and See ya soon.Chris Thomson

A commendable venture! I believe I'll pursue this one. When I first started fencing in the SCA, I was asked if I had any experience. I replied no, only that I was Army-Infantry. "Oh Good, he knows how to walk," was the arrogant comment that came from the back of the room. It took only 8 sessions before everyone found out that I can do more than walk. I can Take the Objective! I believe your group, with it's interests and disciplines, will appreciate that type of attitude. One must never take an aloof attitude toward one's opponent.

Hi I'm a medieval re-enactor of the 15th century, and a member of the 'Klauwaerts'. I like fighting with lots of different steel weapons and would be interested in courses and guiding towards these traditional fighting technics. Together with a few friends, we try to practise some technics by means of 'Kata' movements we developed on our own, but find it a bit awkward moving in heavy equipement and real weapons, so if you have a manual, manuscript or experience in this field of professional training please let me know, because I would be interested in founding a real medieval exhibition and fighting group. We have access to some horses and are programming in the field of jousting as well. Jan

I have already e-mailed your site and was instructed by pc to leave something on your guest book about my request. I'm in the process of buying a William Wallace Sword from CAS Iberia and would like to know if there is somebody in the Tulsa,OK. area that can instruct or has had previous instruction in the use of the broadsword. Your manual, that you are in the process of compiling would be great, but is no substitute for on hand instruction. I've been involved in the asian martials arts for almost 20 years and I know that a book can show you many things, but not without a previous foundation being laid through solid conventional training, with an instructor.

Nice to see someone starting to organise some serrious research. Have been working at it for years, but kept running into roadblocks with groups like SCA because of too much vested interest. Have recently been learning the Japanese sword from someone who actually knows the combative applications rather than menaingless forms.

Hello From New Zealand. I have been a member of an organisation in NZ, called Auckland Sword & Shield Society for about four years. Having moved away it's nice to see other organisations, especially on the net. Just in case you all decide to go international, I would be very interested, as I had become a junior instructor, and am currently teaching two people the basics in Rotorua. The thing i like most about your organisation is the fact that you use steel weapons, all training i have recieved was with tempered spring steel, and i love it. I would like for someone to return mail sometime. Oh and by the way great site you've got here

Hi. It is great to see that so many people are interested in fencing - espeacally in medieval fencing! But there is one big problem in "redoing" the old "art of fencing". We all have to thank Gustav Hergsell for copying three of the six Talhoffer manuscripts. But: He was a great fencing master - no doubt - but he wasnt at the old german literature and language, so he made some mistakes which have survived up to now. Perhaps I can help to clear one of them. (Please see entry "Hergsell's translations of Talhoffer clarifications" in warrior-to-warrior forum under "Documentation & Ancient Treatises" for full explaination.)
Yours sincerly, Norbert Krines, student at the University Bamberg and "�ungsleiter" (some kind of trainer for the easy things) at the local fencing club. P.S. Please excuse my not so well english - Im trying to improve it - promissed! And keep going!

FORMIDABLE! (French pronunciation.) I send you good wishes on your efforts to re-create authentic European martial arts. When I see some of the techniques used on television or in motion pictures, I often wish that I could reach through the screen, slap one or more of the combatants upside the head and say, "Congratulations! In a real fight you would already be dead!" May Odin empower you!

Hi,I would be very interested in finding a local class (affiliate) in sword techniquies. I've been involved in a local LARP group for about 5 yearsand also have taken martial arts, as a kid, so I already have a small level of experience, using padded boffer weapons. I'm seeking to increase my level of experties,physical conditioning and this seems to suit this well. Also I have approx. 100 friends +/- who are interested in the same sort of thing. The LARP group,that I'm in, are medieval re-inactors (this is a continuing, monthly game) so its possible that I could get a number of pople interested in this.ThanksGary Freitas

This is an interesting idea. It is a very good idea in fact. Many people I know like this era of combat. I used to play something called "melee". It is midieval sword play using pvc pipe and pipe wrap. It as close as you could come to your training that you offer. It is nothing like what you have however. Yours is an actual class. Ours was nothing more than a game that we chose to play. Your class more than likely teaches the fine points of combat and proper ettiquet. Similar to Asian martial arts. I would not mind being e-mailed by you. I would like to talk more about what you do with an instuctor or some one like that. Basicly an authority on your organization.

Let us know when your book is complete. We are members of the California-based Guild of the Clan of St. Andrews Royal Scots, portraying the court of Mary Queen of Scots (God Save The Queen!), circa 1562. We are interested in all forms of European martial arts. Once you get your sword masters and begin developing your training, consider putting together a video for people outside your area. We would be interested! Some of us are one-time members of Tournament Productions, and used to do alot of fighting with live steel, full-armour tournament-style. Good Luck!

Like those who have posted here before me, I wish to offer my unqualified good wishes to the AEMMA. I am utterly ecstatic to see historical European combat styles being practiced with a scholarly rather than a sport or fantasy approach. I find it a pity, however, that your professed stylistic cut-off date excludes 16-17th century rapier technique, despite the amount of information you have available on it. I suppose that this omission spares me the expense of moving to Toronto, though, as otherwise the proverbial wild horses could not keep me away.

Good luck with your project. I am doing a similar training project. I am heading to Europe to travel, and while there, I hope to meet with groups in the various countries where I can do some studying and sparing with them.

I am intriuged. But far of a drive to see what classes are like. Interested in the book. Might make a nice collection to my medieval library.I've been doing SCA fighting for twelve years now, so I can only say, "Have fun, be safe."

My interests are in medieval swordsmanship, as taught by Terry Brown, John Clements and others. Under the instruction of Terry Brown, I am beginning the long journey towards competence with the sword, sword and secondary weapons and various pole arms.

I would greatly enjoy knowledge of complete publication of the training manual. Also, do you have a time table as to when classes or a group that will be available in the NYC area. What are your armor reguirements and such.

Nice site, I can't wait for the rst of the book to be published. A couple of quick questions -- do you intend to publish the manual online, available to all interested or are you going to get it published on paper and sell it?Also, why does the bottom frame keep refreshing? It doesn't change, you dont have to reload it..Again, this is great.. I can't wait for one of these kinds of schools to appear in Caliornia.
