    Thanks for the clips.

    Interesting. Seems like someone must have worked that out by now.

    Backsword intensive at Combat Con

    I just got a generic FB "Invite" to Paul's Backsword Intensive at Combat Con.

    Blurb:

    The basket hilted backsword/broadsword is the primary weapon of the Edinburgh based Macdonald Academy of Arms and a primary Scottish sidearm that features extensively through it's most turbulent period of history. Maestro Macdonald has spent years in reviving the Art of this weapon and offers a rare opportunity to train in effective techniques against it's own kind and for Combat Con 2012, learn how to overcome opponents armed with dissimilar weapons!

    Check out the details here - http://thecombatcon.com/backsword-intensive and be sure to take advantage of registering pre-event.

    The statement, "opportunity to train in effective techniques" clearly indicates that he's going to be teaching the historic, fighting side of the art far more than any Stage Combat variation (if at all).

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    This is a 95% complete version of the class schedules; the majority of classes are in straight WMA, some straight stage combat/stunt fighting, a few that combine both in various ways.

    I believe that there's an alternative product for that:
