Twelve pictures from the local SCA practice, and ten from the Academie Duello weekly fight night. Jordan Both is the fighter in grey in the first photos, paired up with Jerry Kittel. The guy demonstrating the truism that you can tell a real martial artist by their calves is Justin Ring, acting as David to Matheus Olmedo’s Goliath. The exception is the first photo, were Justin in bouting with someone else, not sure who. Tao Wong is demonstrating that in any given LARP, his musket skills will completely destroy Kaja Sadowski’s Elven Sabre hurricane Attack. Her retaliatory Meteor Strike was unfortunately too overexposed to post.
