This event is a series of workshops all with the same overlying theme - How to actually think about what to do while bouting.
We have three different instructors who shall be running these workshops; David Coblentz, Jayson Barrons and Travis Mayott. They shall bring their own experiences and perspectives to this topic to help further your ability to fence intelligently.
The workshops shall run from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon. Each workshop shall be 2 hours long and deal with a different aspect of the topic.
This is a weapon neutral event as it works more on underlying theory rather than specific weapon orientated actions.
Cost for the weekend - $50
Cost for 2 days - $35
Event T-Shirt - $15
Please fill in the following form after you pay for the event to mark your attendance.
Our first Instructor is Travis Mayott:
Maryland KdF Head Instructor
Travis Mayott has had a lifelong interest in all things both martial and historical Europe. Initially, he found his sword fix in sport fencing, but started finding the sport lacking after being exposed to a number of medieval and renaissance swordsmanship manuals. He started his HEMA experience at the hands of Jake Norwood at Longpoint 2014 and went on to train under Ben Jarashow, Kiana Shurkin, and Jess Rozek at Maryland KdF, where he is now serving as the head instructor. He also is a practitioner of traditional English warbow archery.
Our second Instructor Jayson Barrons
Jayson Barrons - Krieg School Instructor
Jayson has taken the opposite path of Travis - after engrossing himself in HEMA, he also trains in epee for the purpose of honing technique as well as fencing strategy.
In addition to being the fundamentals instructor at Krieg School Denver, Jayson is currently the President of the HEMA Alliance and Editor of measureandweigh.com. He cut his HEMA teeth with Tristan Zukowski at NYHFA, before moving to Denver to train under Ben Floyd at Krieg School. He recently took silver at PHO 2017.
Our third Instructor David Coblentz
Maestro David Coblentz is the principal instructor at the Decatur School of Arms in Decatur, Georgia, where he teaches the art of the rapier according to the Italian tradition. David was certified as a fencing master by a board of maestri in May 2010. His training came primarily from the San Jose Fencing Masters Program. His approach to instruction combines modern fencing pedagogy with historical rapier sources.
This is a very rough outline of the event. It shall be most likely changed a little as we get closer to the event.
