In addition to all the other fun to be expected at Guardian this April 14,
there will also be an SCA Cut&Thrust class, approved by Master/Don Modius,
after the tournament. This will likely occur at the same time as the White
Scarf circle, so as to maximize the time between the tournament and Circle
for the White Scarves have for pickup fights and instruction. Apologies to
any WS's who might wish to attend the class, but if time can be found for
individual (or small group) training and instruction, then I will try to
accommodate any I can.

The class will be a beginning-level class for Cut&Thrust in the SCA. It will
be very similar to the one Aeron Harper taught at Steppes Warlord last year.
We will be covering the rules and armor/equipment requirements for C&T in
the SCA and Ansteorra, discuss the history of sidesword, and learn the
basics from two of the most popular masters of the time, Marozzo and
dall'Aggochie. Masks may be used for some drills, but not required for all.
Pads, helmet, and the additional armor requirements for Cut&Thrust will not
be needed as the class will be employing slowly executed drills with no
contact intended. There will be a limited supply of loaner blades, but any
35"-45" Darkwood, Del Tin, or Angus Trim rapier, bated rapier, sidesword, or
backsword will work, though one around 35"-37"

would be most recommended.

There will also be a handout for students to use for individual and group

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

Yours in service,

Ld. Corvin di Fenarro

Cadet to Master/Don Aeron Harper
