Subject: Historic Combat class, 7 Dec

For the Historic Combat minded, next Sunday 7 Dec @ 10am, we will be
covering an introduction to WMA.  If you caught last years Thanksgiving
Holiday session with me, you can expect a similar experience. This year will
be discussion on symbolism and interpretation of historic combat documents,
comparisons of WMA systems as they parallel and / or diverge from each
other, warm-up drills, unarmed takedowns, unarmed defense against the
roundel / dagger, and unarmed / armed takedowns against the long sword.
Required equipment will include, roundel / dagger / longsword simulators, a
three weapons fencing mask or bar-grilled head protector.
Recommended equipment: Play Clothes (you will be on the ground at some
point), athletic cup, female chest protector, sturdy footwear, gloves, neck
protection and cold weather garments as necessary.
There will be no full speed sparring or ground fighting, bring protective
equipment you feel you may need.
