First Day 5-19-19


First Day at CVDA:

Our first meeting in the new space will be Sunday, May 19th, 11am. We are not an open sala, so if you are interested please contact Jim Emmons (cf. our contact form on this website). Fencers already enrolled, please remember to send Jim your contact information (preferred phone, email address).

Remember to bring a pair of shoes with you, a pair you’ve not worn on the street–we’re excited by the partnership with CVDA and want to keep the studio clean and the dancers happy! See you then!

Rule-Set/ROW Seminar:

In anticipation of our 2nd Annual Sabre Invitational (June 9th), we will use the second practice (5-26-19) as a review of the rule-set and how we are implementing ROW (“right of way”). This is a rule-set we devised for classical/historical fencing and makes use of ROW a bit differently than our Olympic colleagues.

If you are competing, then you are also a judge, so it behooves you to attend if you can make it.

New Sabre Class at Sister School, Indes Ferox Gladio

Intro Sabre Class at IFG

Will Richmond, one of our members, will be teaching a sabre class for Indes Ferox Gladio Tuesday nights, 7-9pm. They meet at the MAC (the Multnnomah Arts Center).

Will studied with a number of masters, including Charles Selberg, and is an accomplished epee/spada fencer as well as a sabreur. A member of IFG and student of KdF, he is reintroducing sabre after an unfortunate hiatus at Indes, and can thus easily translate sabre for thise students more accustomed to longsword.
