This weekend I attended SoCal Swordfight, a historical European martial arts event from February 17-19.Fencers from all over the country came to test their skills against others in matches featuring the longsword, rapier, sword and buckler and messer. Instructors were also on hand to teach classes about various weapons disciplines from the middle ages.
The event ended on Sunday with the final matches for all divisions and a banquet to bring everyone together as friends. Fighters and spectators alike enjoyed the chance to come together as a community and participate in an exhibition of artful fencing.
