Heads up to the folks in DFW!

The Schola Saint George school for chivalric arts has a new-ish training facility on Irving Blvd in downtown Dallas where they are teaching many different styles of medieval martial arts. I've just started taking classes in sword in two hands and am planning on joining the rapier class when it starts up in April. Russ and Brian have been teaching us from the translations of the 15th century manuscripts of Fiore dei Liberi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiore_dei_Liberi).

Classes are Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. First class is free and there is a floor fee of $55 a month for as many classes as you want to attend (or $150 for 3 months). No equipment is required for beginner's classes. They advise that you wear flat-soled shoes that don't have a lot of rubber grip. Further information can be found at the Schola Saint George website (http://www.scholasaintgeorge.org/joomla/index.php) or the DFW group's meetup site (http://www.meetup.com/DFW-Schola-Saint-George-Medieval-Renaissance-Swordsmanship/). Those interested in purchasing period appropriate equipment as well as training materials can find them at www.revival.us (http://www.revival.us)

Good to see the Goddess (Good, that is) back on the site after an extensive hiatus, if only for a brief message. However, I must regretfully inform you that anyplace where you are swinging a sword, you can rest assured you will not find me there. :D

Aww, even a blunted practice sword? ;)

I've been gone for a while mostly because of work. I was moved to a new project and it's taken up a lot of my time. I miss this place and the monthly movie meets, though, and still send people that are looking for games here.

Quick note: Fencing classes begin tonight and run every Thursday night, same time. I believe this starts at 7:30 pm. Regular beginner's classes in sword in two hands begin at 6:30 pm and run until Russ gets tired of talking :) (though they nominally end at 7:30 pm)
