Sword Workshop 2011

On March 19, 2011 the ARMA North Siders were invited back for the 6th year to do a beginning sword workshop for future fight choreographers. ARMA Representatives included Kyle Cook, Stacy Clifford, Austin Fontaine, John Schmidt and Elizabeth Bernhardt.

The workshop began with a short lecture and ARMA members demonstrating the proper uses of the Guards and Cuts in Free Play Sparring before splitting the class into two groups. Kyle's group were shown Basic Foot Work, Primary Guards, and Basic Cuts for longsword. Stacy took the second group and showed Single Sword Guards, Cuts and Footwork. Both groups were also shown some cut/counter cut drills. The afternoon 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.
