Does anyone here participate in any ARMA groups...or schools, I really don't even know how its organized. Are they actually credible, what are their training methods, what sort of arts have you learned?
I really don't like 'Classical fencing' schools as a whole, because they really mostly are just failed sports fencers with a grudge and a 'to deadly' attitude.
ARMA on the other hand seems different and sincere, but I would love to hear some first hand accounts.
For instance, in the rapier fencing is it NHB like Epee fencing, or do they try to instill rules such as fully extending the arm every time you want to score a touch? Is there a right of way rule like sabre or foil fencing?
Thanks in advance.
