An interesting Wikipedia article I found.

Postby Agrippa » Mon Feb 06, 2012 9:46 pm

It's about the German school of fenicing and names the basic stances, or guards along with it's hews and other miscellaneous techniques. I'm not sure how many forum goers would find any use from it in their games but it's a fascinating read. You can find it right here.

Sounds like there are some historical fenders here. Or at the least those who are familiar with the canon of the art, eh?

!! Thread Jack !! ~ Sorry :oops:

Sizzaxe - your signature is MOST awesome!!

I like fencing, btw, though I don't know much about it. It might be a good sport for my son, however.
