Rapier Teaching Dossier

Quoth Antonius:

I am most comfortable with beginners and intermediates.

I am willing to take students, and I tend to be a tourney teacher.

While I prefer foot work over speed, I try to work with both, and am most interested in technique.

I am comfortable with both watch/critique, and fight/critique, and use them both.

I am not uncomfortable teaching females, lefties, tall people, short people, large people, slow people. I am uncomfortable with people who think they know it all.

I don’t travel to other practices, and that is a failing on my part. My time is somewhat limited and the distances are great.

I am approachable and will not make students cry, although I may make them yawn.

My activity is mostly around our Barony, since as I said before, my time is limited and the distances away are great.

I am interested in Marozzo and try to work on his style when not teaching basic SCA stuff.
