Hello Sword Labs!

My name is Doug and I learned about HEMA earlier this year and found this club. Understandably the club isn't meeting right now but I'd like to express my interest in joining and ask some questions. My interests are in rapier and long sword...but mostly rapier. Thanks for reading and I look forward hearing from you all.

Word to the wise if you want to start cutting clay. Go visit your local pottery store. You should be able to purchase Clay at a quarter the cost of buying on Amazon. If you want to go really cheap ask if they have clean out clay You can probably pick that up for $5 per 25 lb. Plus you get the added comfort of supporting your local businesses.

Are you getting excited to get back to fencing?!?!
Please take the time to go over the rules of our lovely host site Duke City Fencing:
Per the policies of our host organization, Duke City Fencing, the following Covid-safe practices must be observed if you plan to attend class or observe a session:
1. Upon arrival to and departure from DCF, wash your hands in one of the restrooms or use the hand sanitizer available at the front desk.
2. If arriving during the weekday sessions, you'll be approached for a temperature check using a touchless thermometer before being allowed to enter.
3. Face coverings are required as much as practical. Since it can be hard to breathe while training, we are taking frequent breaks for air and water.
4. The water fountain is off-limits. Please bring your own bottle of water.
5. DCF equipment is no longer freely available for use. Equipment can be checked out from DCF, and is assigned to you for your sole use. You are financially responsible for the equipment if it is lost, damaged, or stolen.

04/14/2021

Mark your calendars, we're gonna be back at it May 2nd. I'll be posting guidelines from our host site (duke city fencing) and the minor guidelines from us here soon.

04/11/2021

Beginners! What day works better for you, Sunday noon-2pm or Monday 730-930pm?

We have more space on Sunday and conceivably more time. (Able to use before or after normal hours).

Thanks,
Josh
