Hello! I am originally from MD, and currently in Flagstaff. I practiced HEMA in MD for a good while. Ive been meaning to go down and join you guys occassionally. In the meantime, been hanging around the SCA crowd for a bit, and they have an upcoming unofficial event happening in Buckeye from 11th through 14th of november (not really sure of the address, ill hopefully find out soon, and share). I heard there might be a variety of fencers there (mostly SCA, but i heard a few HEMA, and possible ACL folks too). Figured I'd extend an invite to you all, in case anyone is interested in a event to spar and meet new people. I think the event is kind of just a get together for general sparring, but there may be some SCA specific stuff as well. There is a registration fee, and need to prereg. Here is the link. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L62B2DT

Let me if this kinda post isnt allowed, if so, I am sorry!

Ps, im hopefully planning on attending your practice that weekend, I had thought practices were on Sunday, but saw a post about Saturday practice, is it both days, or just Saturday?
Hello everyone, I was wondering the authenticity of this treatise on Spanish knife fighting El manual del Baratero or in english the manual of the baratero.
Thought you would find this interesting https://www.instagram.com/p/CSuQEh4j1hp/?utm_medium=copy_link
“La Flor de las Batallas de 1409 del maestro Fiore Dei Liberi” Con la mejor interpretación de Richard Marsden instructor de la Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship USA.

A sparring game from Monday night's class it's called Wiff

The goals to dial in timing and distance. Regular sparring but if you can get your opponent to swing and only hit air they are out. We are using buffers here just to keep things moving fast. We have three fight circles going at the same time and students moving from one-handed, two-handed and one-handed versus two-handed scenarios

Wednesday night sparring group

08/10/2022

"A woman always labors under a disadvantage in any athletic tournament. Being a woman, she has to do twice the work any ordinary man would have to do to prove ability. In my case the audiences always seemed to take it for granted that there was a certain amount of gallantry on the part of the man fencing against me, simply because he was not fencing with one of his own s*x. If any point was in doubt and was finally allowed to me, the spectators were sure to say; 'Oh, he’s gallant, and has allowed her that point.'
That was why I always put forward my utmost efforts to beat an opponent so hard, fast and decisively that there could be no possible doubt as to my superiority. Some of the scars I carry on my face, sword arm and body show conclusively how much chivalric consideration was shown me because I was a woman."

- Ella "Jaguarina" Hattan, America’s champion swordswoman, 1903.
