Some friends and I have been trying to come up with the safest way to do full-contact continuous weapon-sparring over the last several years. This project is called Tres Espadas:

We wanted to make sure anyone on Bullshido who might be interested was invited to our next meeting on August 27th, 2011 at 3:30 PM, at Evergreen Park in Bremerton Washington:

We basically just spar with safety weapons and protective gear in 2 minute rounds, until people have had enough sparring for the day. There are lots of video examples of this on the blog at

So if you are interested in hand-to-hand weapon martial arts and are going to be in our area on August 27th 2011, we invite you to attend.
