Rapier Teaching Dossier

Quoth Grace: "I am actively looking for students interested in working to improve their fencing and developing as a fighter. I feel I can offer the most to the fighter who isn't a natural athlete but has to work hard for every bit of skill since that's been my own experience. My teaching style focuses on footwork, blade mechanics, and repetition, building up sequences and training options so that muscle memory is trained. While I'm familiar with and adaptable to many period styles, I don't teach any specific style exclusively. On the other hand, I'm happy to casually help anyone whenever there is time available. While I personally focus on melees, I train individual combat first and melee techniques second. If someone is interested in melee techniques, command, and strategy, I'm happy to help. I generally try to make Gyldenholt and Lyondemere practices and can arrange to make the Noe College practice (Monday) easily. I am willing to travel to Sunday practice in Calafia or Darach on an occasional basis."
