Some of you may know that I've been learning German Longsword with Forte Swordplay. We've put together a video of most of the folks in the group sparring.


I'm the one yelling "yes" a lot (both in the ring and later inside). You can catch [livejournal.com profile] arcanology at the beginning in the early sparring clips. Notice how he doesn't flail the sword around at arm's length the way I do a couple of times here.

I recently served as a crash test dummy for a technical debate on the WMAC forum. This just got pulled together and has lively discussions going; I wish I'd followed this one before we shot the video for it, as I'd have been more attentive to a few points.


If anyone's interested in swordplay, give me a poke. We practice Wednesday evenings 8-10PM in a dojo on 3A in Burlington, and Sundays 11AM-1PM either there or in a park in Reading if the weather's good. Wednesday is the day to go if you don't know what you're doing yet. It's $10/session; we have equipment to loan to new folks (and in fact very few of us own a complete set of every kind of weapon we drill with).
