Tonight is the first official meeting of The Bordermen Society, a somewhat newly formed Academy for the Study of Historical Northern European Martial Arts.

While I am, admittedly, a tad rusty, I am looking forward to getting back in the saddle, so to speak. I was heavily involved in HACA (Historical Armed Combat Association) in the mid-90s and I have been a lifelong sword enthusiast.

I am blessed to have two eager students and a great training facility where we’ll be able to cross swords earnestly.

Our primary focus will be the longsword, but over time I hope to incorporate knife fighting,  sword and shield, sword and axe, and Florentine-inspired sword and dagger/short sword.
