ARMA is a proud member of

Comicpalooza 2015

On Memorial Day Weekend, May 22-25, 2015, ARMA Houston hosted a booth at the annual Comicpalooza convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX for the fifth consecutive year. We again offered 30-minute classes on longsword, dagger, and rapier each day throughout the weekend, teaching more than 600 people a little bit about Renaissance martial arts throughout the 4-day weekend. In addition, this year we taught a more in-depth two-hour introductory course that included a practice waster to take home. Later in the afternoon we also presented a full one-hour fight demonstration to show what full-contact sparring with a variety of weapons really looks like, which thoroughly captivated our audience. Our friends from Fearghal Blades were back with a table, and Dragon Mark joined us as a vendor this year with a variety of accurate historical weapons (including early firearms) and our favorite, the rack, to torture slacking members and annoying guests! We were pleased to have many repeat visitors who saw us in years past. This event continues to grow for us every year, and we are already plotting ways to make it even more exciting next time!
