Mini-documentary on historical German martial arts
YouTube- Schermus Pictus
Really nice little documentary from a group in Slovakia, showing their training in tumbling and conditioning, kampfringen (combat wrestling) and longsword fencing in the Renaissance German tradition. Make sure the "captions" function is switched on to read the English subtitles.

Cool stuff. How would I go about finding a training group of a similar variety in San Diego?

Very cool stuff. Ringen looks very interesting. Fortunately there's a group in Helsinki that gathers semi-regularly to do that stuff. I think I'll join them next time :)Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.
