Review of the recent event in Baltimore, USA. We look at several fights, discuss the event as a whole, its future and also some of the issues facing rapier in competition.

The trouble with treatises...

Three pictures from the beautiful set of pictures ascribed to Pedro De Heredia, held by the Swedish Royal Library. Each holds a problem as various parts do not match the original treatise - plus the author himself may not have been De Heredia...

A fascinating set of puzzles that will be examined in the forthcoming book.

Four of the 71 beautiful plates from the Swedish Royal Library, part of the treatise attributed to Pedro De Heredia (c.1610). I'm working on the forward to the translation, which will be published (including the plates!) by Fallen Rook later this year.

Thanks to my partner in crime, Hans Jörnlind in obtaining these :)

I'm very excited to announce that my  translation of the manuscript ascribed to Pedro De Heredia will be published through Fallen Rook! This manuscript dates to the early seventeenth century and details many aspects of Italian fencing, specifically Cavalcabo, yet also discusses circular movement and methodology for countering the .mathematical play’. Forms include single sword, sword and dagger and sword and cape, as well as grappling and disarms.

In addition, through the hard work of Hans Jörnlind, we have obtained the rights to publish 72 associated colour prints from the Swedish Royal Library.
