July 19th through 21st I'll be hosting the Flower of Battle with LAD Historical Fencing in Reading Pennsylvania. I don't normally toot my own horn, but I hope you'll forgive me for being excited to host a 3 day event that in addition to a Longsword Tournament, will have a Cutting Tournament, A Techniques Tournament, Singlestick, Dagger, Messer, Grab-Bag Mixed Weapons, and Grappling tournaments, as well as a host of classes with instructors such as Chuck Gross with HEMAStrong, Julie Olson, Connor Kemp-Cowell, Patrick Bratton, Charles Lin, James Reed, and others! We're pulling a lot of talent in the Mid-Atlantic region together to put on something special. https://www.facebook.com/events/172002340349274/
