photo31.jpg (55961 bytes)On February 21, 2007 the ARMA North Siders were invited back for the 3rd year to do a beginning sword workshop for 125 future fight choreographers. ARMA Representatives included Kyle Cook, Sydney Yarbrough, Stacy Clifford, and Eric Wagner.

The workshop’s morning session started at 8:00 am with Kyle, Sydney, and Eric each taking a group. These three groups were shown Basic Foot Work, Primary Guards, and Basic Cuts. Stacy took a fourth group and showed Short Sword Guards, Cuts and Foot work. After the morning session, class broke for lunch.

Returning from lunch, ARMA members Sydney, Eric, and Stacy (by popular demand), demonstrated the proper uses of the Guards and Cuts in Free Play Sparring. Sparring was done with Long Sword, Short Sword, Sword & Buckler, Sword & Dagger, and the Messer. Kyle Cook explained to the students what they were seeing during sparring.

The afternoon session continued with each of the groups learning more cuts and guards. They were also shown some cut/counter cut drills. The afternoon session concluded with students demonstrating what they had learned. Pairing up into groups of two or four, the students demonstrated choreographs of their own short fight scenes. The day ended with a group picture.
