Renaissance Festival 2004 Demonstration
On the opening weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival October
2-3, 2004, members of the ARMA Study Groups from Houston, DFW and
Texas A&M staged a series of training and free-play demonstrations
lasting both days. Four half-hour demonstrations were given each day,
consisting of tiprogressions, cutting exercises, cut and counter drills,
and lots of free-play bouts with wasters and blunt steel.
Bouts became increasingly intense and fiercely contested as the weekend
wore on, which captured the crowd's attention and provided an incredible
practice opportunity for all involved.
