In addition to all the other fun to be expected at Guardian this April 14,
there will also be an SCA Cut&Thrust class, 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. 

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
Cut&Thrust in the Ansteorra, discuss the history of sidesword, and learn
fundamental techniques based on the teachings of 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,

Lord Corvin di Fenarro

Cadet to Master/Don Aeron Harper
