2002 Academy of the Rapier
January 18-20, 2002

All are invited to attend Ansteorra's Academy of the Rapier held at The TSTC
Club House in Waco, TX. From duelist to novice, from White to Red Scarf,
from rapier to rattan -- all will be in attendance. The White Scarves of
Ansteorra will be there in force: The question is...will you?
Classes will be presented so that all can benefit. Are you an advanced
fighter seeking some new ideas and approaches to the Duel? Are you a novice
seeking to work with an instructor about whom you have only heard and from
whom you wish to learn a different technique? Or are you a rattan fighter
seeking to learn the techniques of the duello? Over 36 instructors have
offered their expertise to this academy, so come play, learn, and enjoy.
Consider the words of Joseph Swetnam from his "Noble and Worthy Science of
Defence" written in 1617:
 "Then he is not worthy to be called a Master of Defence, which cannot
defend himself at all weapons,..and therefore greatly wronged are they which
will call such a one a Fencer, for the difference between a Master of
Defence and a Fencer, is as much as between a Musician and a Fiddler, or
betwixt a Merchant and a Peddler"...
