Victoria Public Library Demo 2010

On June 7, 2010 the ARMA North Siders were invited back again to do another demonstration for the Summer Reading Program at the Victoria Public Library in Victoria, Texas. Kyle Cook, Stacy Clifford, Erich Wagner, Wes White, Sydney Heald, Mike Wrenn, Austin Fontaine, and John Schmidt made the trip out to Victoria for the demo. Since the previous demo in 2009 was so poular and well received, this time they moved us to a larger room in another building that could seat a much bigger audience, and more than 300 people showed up to watch. The demo itself lasted for two hours. The North Siders demonstrated our drills and exercises, discussed sword history and common myths about swords, and allowed the children and adults in attendance to examine replica weapons and armor. Stacy and Wes also gave a segment on their current research on Giacomo Di Grassi's single sword fighting.

The highlight, as always, was when the sparring began. The audience was treated to bouts featuring longsword, single sword, sword and buckler and sword and dagger with the typical ARMA intensity. Afterward the kids were invited to spar with our members a bit using padded swords for fun. Once again the trip was a resounding success and the North Siders plan to be back again in 2011.
