          This dude posted on the old website....and you said the same thing.

          What the hell is going on here?
          Do I need to start drinking now for it to make sense?

                  European fencing. Primarily sabre, also competent in foil and epee.

                    Excellent,
                    I am a kenjutsu man myself, but I have some nice books on western fencing.
                    Any recomendations?
                    I have Aldo Nadi one, of course, and a few that the titles escape me...

                      "By the Sword" by Richard Cohen and "Harnessing Anger: the Way of an American Fencer" by Peter Westbrook are both great, but not if you're looking for instructional books. If that's what you want, Nadi is, of course, good. Nick Evangelista also has several books that have good explanations of fencing, including "The Art and Science of Fencing" and "The Inner Game of Fencing." Many fencers hate his ideas with a passion (he is very much a tradiationalist), but I can see the value in his books, so long as people realize that his is not the only, or necessarily best, fencing phiosophy.

                        I have "by the sword".
                        The art and science of fencing, I have also.
                        I will take a look at the others you mentioned.
                        I am interested in the "martial art" of western fencing and not as much the olympic sport.
                        What do you think of Richard Burtons works?

                          I can't say that I'm necessarily familiar with Richard Burton. What work of his specifically do you reccomend?

                            The book of the sword.
                            It's not bad at all, he is way off on some stuff, but it is historical.
                            He did his travelling all over the world.
                            Amazon has it.

                              Ah, yes. I am familiar with the book. In high school, I wrote several papers on fencing, and that was a good source of historical information.
