Description
Have you ever looked at the rapier field and thought, “well that looks like fun”! Good News, you were right! Best of all its easy to get started, and probably even more fun then you thought it was. In this class we will go over the Atlantian rapier traditions, what it takes to get started, how to get started, the different gear you will see and use, a brief overview of the rules, authorizations and why they are not so bad, an introduction period and modern references and we’ll cap it all off with a Q&A session. You’ll also leave with a copy of my SCA rapier 101 manual (which covers everything you need from how to stand through your authorization) and a period manual (see how the wacky 16th century Italians did it) This is a non-fighting class designed for those who are 16+ and want to get started in SCA rapier.
