    Chivalric Fighting Arts Association

    http://www.chivalricfighting.org/

    Just a heads-up ...

    Founded in 2011, the Chivalric Fighting Arts Association (CFAA) is an international organization of schools and clubs devoted to the study of historical European martial arts, particularly those practiced in a chivalric context, used in war, the tournament, and the duel.

    Our member schools share a dedication to the revival of the fighting arts from the past, as well as a belief that the study and practice of these arts is a tool for building character and personal discipline - qualities that we believe can be of benefit to the modern world as much as they were for the ancient one.

    CFAA members study diverse martial arts - from lands ranging from Iberia to Britain, from the late Middle Ages to the early modern era, and including weapons ranging from the sword and buckler to the rapier. Ours is a fraternal organization, without a governing body, bound together only by our shared values, mutual support of our endeavors, and passion for ancient martial arts and their cultural milieu.

    This sounds badass and I hope it will contribute to inter-academy cooperation and training.

    To a certain extent, there already exist some inter-academy ties: The CFAA formalises pre-existing relationships rather than being created out of thin air to foster them. (The school where I practice, Vancouver’s Academie Duello, recently hosted a large symposium with visiting instructors coming from as far and wide as Helsinki.) The original announcement, and some discussion, are here, on Sword Forum.

    Sigh I wish I had an academy. I do sport fencing for conditioning and reflexes and study old manuals like a lot of people started out doing. I got really into Destreza and that's my big interest right now HEMA wise.
