Dueling Workshop, 2/29-3/1

February 29th and March 1st the Nelson School of Arms hosted a workshop on dueling in the 19th century, taught by Maestros Ramón Martinez and Jeannette Acosta Martinez. We focused on how a master would prepare a student with no experience for a duel the next day.

Thank you and very well done to everyone who came out from Washington DC, San Francisco, San Diego, and our local fencers here in LA. A very special thank you to Maître Cecil Longino of the Salle Saint-Georges for assisting in instruction during the practical on Saturday, and serving as President of Combat during the mock duels on Sunday.
