To anyone who may be interested, there is a nifty stage combat workshop going on in Cincinnati, OH in March. It is called "March Madness". There will be teachers there from the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD), Wing Chun and Tae Kwon Do instructors, and a fencing instructor. This kind of stuff is used in renfaires all over. There are several well known acts that are trained by and even teachers in the SAFD. If you are interested in participating in human chessgames or anything else that involves sworfighting this is the place to get the skills to look GREAT! There will be classes in Quarterstaff, Unarmed, Rapier & Dagger, Broadsword, Single Sword, Smallsword, Sword & Sheild, Knife and more. Multiple attackers, swashbuckling 101, advanced takedowns, classic film fights are just some of the classes that may be offered.You can choose to take 6 of the 18 classes being offered over a 2 day span. It should be a blast. There are people traveling from all over, Texax, Virginia, DC, and even Florida for this experience. It is open to everyone, all levels of experience are welcome.
