[DRA] Aros Historical Fencing Camp

The shire of Aros is honoured to yet again host the annual Historic Fencing Camp. Yet again we will have Master Timotheus with us, this time to teach us on the paradox of Defence as understood by George Silver and Master Cernac the Inspired will be instructing us on the teachings of Nicoletto Giganti.

Apart from that Master Arenwald is back from the far reaches of Lochac and will be teaching us Marozzo and some general techniques in footwork and voiding. Prince Erik will instruct us in how to win Nordmark Coronet using period technique.

The site has 18 beds available and there will be crashspace available as well. Site opens at 1700h on Friday and closes at 1800h on Sunday. Breakfast and lunch will be served on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be travellers’ fare available on Friday evening and a splendid banquet on Saturday evening.
