Ever looked at The Lord of the Rings and sighed, “Man, those swords look so cool”?
That’s how it all started. A few years later my father was cluttering the apartment with swords and daggers, and went to medieval swordsmanship training every week. Now, a handful of years later, I’m following in his footsteps.
Ready, Set, Unsheath
This is a blog about my journey into the world of medieval swordsmanship. It started with me attending a basic Fiore course in February 2012 and writing here about every lesson. I hope that through this blog I’m able to inform and entertain anyone who’s interested in the medieval period or swordsmanship, as well as document my experiences so that I can look and laugh at them later.
I suggest you start at the beginning. The introductory post and the first beginner’s course lesson posts will hopefully give you more information. Should you ever be confused about the vocabulary, the glossary page is there to help you. Please let me know if any post or page is unclear or confusing by leaving a comment or sending feedback using the contact form (you’ll see the page when hovering over the “About” link).
