Rapier 2012

Just a short one, as it’s not writing focused.

Back in September, my fencing school ran a tournament to mark the school’s tenth anniversary. It was unusual in historical fencing circles, for the fact that it was dedicated entirely to rapier (the majority of historical fencing schools tend to focus on longsword).

It was utterly brilliant, just about everyone who attended testified to that fact, and begged our instructors to run it again next year. To mark its occasion here’s a preview of the introduction to a DVD that is in the process of being cut. I’ve already tweeted it but thought I’d do a post as well.
