I know that the 'pure' approach is to go straight to treatises, but that's hard work if you've never done anything similar and don't know the terminology etc. I think for a starting point 'Primoris' is pretty good for introducing the concepts, whether Fiore is really your eventual cup of tea or not?

anyway, off topic a bit. I'm still interested if a Manchester group ever does kick off, as would a couple of our lot from cheshire that came up to the manchester group spring of last year when it was regularish.

Hi All,

I will not really be even thinking about teaching till well into the new year, but....

Cheryl, my Mrs, is interested in starting a study group looking at dagger (probably fiore) and sword and buckler (probably later than 1:33)

I will be on hand to give pointers and a bit of guidance now and then if you want it.

Drop me a message here or respond to this post if you are interested.

From the Facebook Page:

Starting in the new year - a sword fighting study group looking at the teachings of Italian fencing master Achille Marozzo (and others) and the use of the side sword and buckler. 16tch-17th Century European Martial Arts.

This group is set up initially to see who would be interested. Classes will be either weekly or fortnightly. Location: TBC

The group is open to anyone - whether you are interested in history, martial arts or just fancy doing something new and different.

First couple of sessions will be introduction sessions to find out what people hope to learn from the group. Probably in a pub somewhere discussing swords over a pint or two!

More information to follow! I look forward to seeing you soon.



I will be providing discount wooden kit for the group as well as being Cheryl's pell.

She has also said she might consider becoming a flouncy-shirted rapier monkey. :evil:

Hi,

Cheryl has got a new job and other commitments and time is going to be limited in future so she's put it on the back-burner for now

Hi,

This is an updated group for a Manchester study group.
At the moment, I am doing monthly lessons for a couple of guys with no venue and working with cheryl on some bolognese sword and buckler/dagger material.

This is not a Schola Gladiatoria study group, and I am not organising it, just helping it along.

Hello all,

Just a quick word to mention that the ex-Stretford club is still going strong at the new Moss Side venue, spiritual home of edged weapons, and a fresh batch of crazy, athletic students are picking things up scarily quickly.

We've become attached to KDF mainly due to my links back to Leeds, but any Scholas are welcome, and we look forward to seeing you all at fightcamp bigtime.

Massive thanks to Paul for starting this club in the 1st place, never would have done it myself.
