The Schedule for the American Smallsword Symposium IV is up. We will have several returning instructors like Chris Treichel, Kevin Cote, and Victor Markland. We are excited to announce that they will be joined this year by Patrick Bratton. All of this years classes will be drawn from the first English translation of La Boëssière's Treatise on the Art of Weapons (1818) done by Phil Crawley. Copies will be available for sale on site.
Christoph Amberger is returning and work you out and will once again bring a sampling of his outstanding collection of original editions of fencing texts and period weapons. We have allotted more time for free play, because you asked for it, including Friday Night Fights at the Baltimore Fencing Center, courtesy of Mr. Amberger. Early bird registration is open but discounted admission will only run for a short time. We were close to capacity last year don't miss this opportunity.
