I suck at this whole "blog" thing. Anyways, tonight at the academy (Northwest Fencing Academy) we worked on the "spada in armi" portions of the four Fiore manuscripts. Especially on our minds is the "new" Florius manuscript and it's weird armoured position with the sword held in the crook of the arm, not in the hand. Anyways, afterwards we took some pictures and here I am in my harness so far (well, I borrowed the gauntlets...).
