English Gothic Bladed Arms, Armor, and Techniques

Instructor: Robert Slate

Get your hands on English gothic weapons and plate armor. See the difference in their designs, function, and learn what made them rise and subsequently fall on the battlefield. See contemporary methods of the day with the very same weapons as well (all hands on), and return home with practical knowledge of movement and leverage by way of three popular techniques. The materials, distances, and workshops I attend to keep the class current are costly and paid out of my own passionate pocket. The small fee to attend the class covers a negligent, fractional amount of such, in order to give those who do the proper tools with which to learn these techniques.

Stance and Movement in the Bellatrix System

Instructor: Tiberius Iulius Rufus Primus

This class will explore the fundamentals of stance and movement in the Bellatrix System. Duke Paul of Bellatrix recently published a book detailing his approach to armored SCA combat. Powerful foundations of that system are stance and movement. We will explore Duke Paul’s concepts of movement, including a brief experience with parallel circles and squared circles. Please bring a rattan waster or sword and note that we will NOT be sparring.
