Ansteorran Academy of the Rapier, January 19, 2002
We still need classes and Instructors. More White Scarves and More
Non-Scarves. This is your opportunity to share what you know.
All are invited to attend Ansteorra's Academy of the Rapier held 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 30 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"...
