I'm currently studying Longsword in New York City at Sword Class NYC/ NYHFA. I've been focusing on Longsword, but I'm also starting Dagger and Ringen. I also wish to start Sword and Buckler, and Messer.
I'm very interested in bringing HEMA into more prominence and recognition throughout the country. I feel that people are too quick to lump us with "re-enactors" and while the SCA and other groups are kinda awesome in their own way, that is not our goal. We are learning the principals of fighting developed in medieval Europe.
Email me if you're in NYC and are looking to spar/hang-out. I'll see you at a tournament, of not before.
