Greetings All,
I am one of the new rapier enthusiast in Ansteorra. I am in Hellsgate (Killeen, Ft Hood). I am no longer able to fight heavy (those darn IED's) but I love the fight so rapier here is come! I took just about all of the introduction to rapier classes and the various styles offered at Kings College this past weekend. I did learn quite a bit but just enough to get me on the list then impaled on the blade of you skilled fighters. I am not fond of being impaled so now my next step is where do i learn how to not die in a bloody heap on the field? I know the simple answer don't get hit but that is harder when you are fairly skill less. I am close to Bryn Gwlad but sadly i need to rise at 430am for work. So I will be able to go train and learn hopefully once or twice a month if I am lucky. 

So My question is what can I read on the internet and book form you tube videos drills ect can i read, view and do to work on my lacking skills? I have the basics of combat from my heavy days but I am very eager to learn and progress. I would LOVE to fight cut and thrust but I also understand it is a advanced part of the sport so I am ready to put in my dues and learn the basics first. 

Thank you for reading this.
