Checking in and Checking out

Hey everyone,

Its been way to long since I posted and this has been due to work.  I have been in China now for 3 weeks with limited access to the internet and than I was just crazy busy before that .  So that is why! Dont ask again.

Tonight is the first melee training session with the local group.  I am pumped it should be fun our big melee event is in a few months and I hope to at the very least have some basics covered by than and have us ready to kick some butt.

Saturdays has been fighter practice, and that has been going well.  We are starting to get some traveling walk ins and I hope to start getting more.  Also, on this note I am headed to Germany with a few guys to go to a regional practice there and than we are going to plan on having one in a town called Malmo just 2hrs south of Göteborg.

Thats the Plan.




Culture of Arms

From the eulogy of Sir William (the) Marshal:

    What is it, then, to bear arms?
    Does one employ them as one might
    a harrow, a winnowing-fan, an axe?
    No, it is a far more arduous labor.
    What then is chivalry?
    So strong a thing, and of such hardihood,
    and so costly in the learning,
    that a wicked man or low dare not undertake it…
    Whoso would enjoy high honour
    first must suitably display
    that he has been well schooled to such arts.
