Recent & upcoming events have brought variety to the CCF salle. In May, Patrick presented at the Quebec Historical Martial Arts Seminar (Recontre des Arts Martiaux Historiques du Québec) where he shared classical French foil techniques with a largely historic fencing crowd. While there, he participated in a Rondel dagger class and brought back some techniques to CCF.
Recently, CCF began to set aside la canne instruction and turn attention to the dueling sword under Patrick’s tutelage. Although we will continue to periodically hone our skills in various weapons for a portion of each practice session, dueling sword will be the main emphasis.
This Thursday is Fight Night! All weapons will be used as we prepare for Saturday’s event. On Saturday May 29th, CCF will host several members of Baited Blade from St. Peters, Missouri. We will suspend our routine on Saturday for an extended bouting with our classical fencing neighbors from 2:00 to approximately 5:00 PM. In addition, Baited Blade will have information available about their forthcoming Sentiment du Fer event in September.
