I had great fun fencing at Cluain's Hastilude yesterday. Attendance was good with myself, Don William, Don Martuccio, Cassia and new scholar Robert all having a play. For William and me it was really our first chance to try longsword combat at speed. It was great fun, but it will take a little while for the instincts to adjust to this weapon form. I'm looking forward to doing a lot more.
