One of the components of this site was at end of life, but updating it required updating something else, which in turn was dependent on a third thing. I got them all updated, but the site template (aka theme) doesn't work with the new version of Joomla! and the company that made it has gone out of business. So, things are working but don't look exactly the way I would like at the moment. I'm looking for a new free template that will look attractive.
I am teaching two classes at Atlantia's February University which is entirely online. PDF copies of my slides are available by clicking on the class name:
Also, a video recording of an earlier version of the WordPress class is available at:
I'll be teaching a class called Introduction to Italian Longsword at Atlantia's University on June 11, 2022 in Lynchburg, VA. Please come join us if you can. The event and the class are free.
I repeated my Italian Longsword class from November's Holiday Faire at Atlantian University on Feb 5, 2022. I covered the same fun plays that spanned across Fiore's manual. But the format was very different. Rather than a hands-on demo/try it yourself in-person class, we were online. So we looked at the plates and translations, discussed what was being described, and then watched a video of my take on the play. I had a half dozen students and we had a good time, but not as good a time as when we got to try out the plays in person.
Slides from Italian Longsword class
I taught a class on Italian Longsword for SCA Combat at Holiday Faire recently. This was a collection of fun plays from various sections of Fiore's manual that can be used on many of the SCA combat fields. Documentation for the class with each plate, translation, and videos for most plays is available:
- Powerpoint with Videos part 1, part 2
- PDF with no video
