Richard Marsden covers the deadly serious but often humorous complaints of the historical fencing masters. From the always angry George Silver to the hyper-critical Monesi, Richard Marsden will illustrate what the masters of old liked- but more importantly, what they didn't like. The other half of the lecture is about his and John Patterson's students at the Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship and what they all overcame or struggled with in HEMA, including advice from the like of Phillip Martin on cutting! Come and learn about what the masters of old complained about! Richard Marsden will have books available.
