This week at Crossing Fight School, we will finally begin our study of Sabre, with the illustrious Camilla Frazier at the helm. Sabre is something that many of us are only beginning to study, but the benefits of training with this weapon are readily obvious. Footwork is crucial, and parry/riposte is (in large part) the order of the day, so to speak.

From what I’ve been able to discern so far (with very limited experience), it seems likely that fighting sabre can give you a different way of looking at how to fight Longsword, and it could be that you can unlock a few different things as a consequence. I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Although I will be unavailable for the next 2 weeks, you will be left in Cam’s capable hands. I strongly encourage each of you to get to these upcoming classes to benefit from Cam’s knowledge and skill. I trust it will be both fun and informative.

I’ll be in Raleigh toiling away at a tournament, and I’ll be in New York next weekend. Enjoy these next 2 Sundays, and I’ll see you all on the 28th.
