    We've had our own WMA-forum for some months now, and I must congratulate us for a very innteresting subforum!
    I try to teach Fiore to 8 students myselves, and plan to add on some Mendoza later on, and thanks to you lot, I'll be able to dig up relevant web-pages, links and tips much easier!

    We are all polite and to the point (exept from this thread :rolleyes: ), and this makes it a subforum where I can go and ask questions and for help without having to fear arrogant :bang: -type persons :)

    (I'd like to allso tip you with swordforum.com, as it is a very good forum allthough somewhat arrogant :eek: )

    (I'll use this thread in order to avoid making a new one)

    I'm just back after a re-enactment-training-weekend in eastern Norway. We were around 100 people, and most of the norwegian groups from southern Norway were present + a nice contigent from some viking-reenacters based in G√łteborg, Sweden. (There were two from Denemark, one from germany, and one from england as well.) The groups represent very different time-periods; we had everything from roman legionares to renissanse knights present! What we all have in comon, is the same rules for fighting.

    We had loads of fun, doing sircle-duels, formation-combat in open terrain, trainig cavallery-breaks on formations, closing and opening ranks for own cavallery, and formation-fighting in woods.

    I got an axe in my head, but got stitched up at the local hospital, and "cured" myself with some beer, Jegermaister and bathing in a mobile wooden pool that had water warmed up to 30*celcius :D (Fun sitting drunk and naked together with male and female fellow combatants :Angel: )

    All in all, I had a very good time, and recomend all WMA-ers (that do weapons) to take a basic security-course and attend training-weekends like this in your respective countries (if such events exist) -or to make sure similar events are organized!
