Martial Arts

Love me, love my waster.  A lesson in longsword with Maestro Paul MacDonald of Edinborough at St. Peter's College in Jersey City, sponsored by the Martinez Academy of Arms. Topic under discussion is the correct relationship of elbow (mine) to windpipe (his). Maestro MacDonald bases his teaching on the work of two 15th-century masters of arms, Fiore de' Liberi and Filippo Vadi. The work on recovery of the western tradition is one of the more exciting developments in contemporary martial arts. Many of the treatises exist only in their original early editions or even in manuscript. Enough to keep a small army of scholarly polymaths busy for a long time!
