Description
This will be a class designed to introduce new students to the period manuals and currently available commercial translations. The class will focus on the understanding of the common threads throughout all the manuals. The student should leave the class with a general understanding of applying modern sports and combat concepts to the period manuals. A basic understanding of translating period combat specifics to safe SCA sports fighting. Various manuals will be available. Students should feel free to bring their manuals and questions. More advanced teachers and students are absolutely welcome. I ask them to attend in an effort to bring a common mindset and vocabulary across the conversation
