Please excuse my past tardiness. It has been tougher these past few weeks to post the, After Action Report promptly on Friday mornings. This is because my Thursday nights have gotten much more involving. After a years of being a sword obsessed nut-job, I’ve finally begun training with a Historical European Martial Arts club. Not because it is practical, not because that knowledge will become potentially useful during the sqoyote (carnivorous, pack hunting squirrel) apocalypse, though it could be. I wanted to learn how to properly use a sword. For anyone who knows me well, the only surprise is that I didn’t get involved with this sooner. I’m currently learning Italian rapier and German longsword, but any type of fencing will be fair game. Saber, side sword and buckler, viking sword and shield, foil, epee or spadroon; you may choose your weapon.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Fencing

All art work is due on Thursday, 7.9.15 Submissions will be published the following weekend of 7.10.15
