Here Comes Swordplay 2012

The Australian College of Arms (ACA) runs an annual gathering in September of historical and period swordsmanship which brings together competitors and participants from all over this wide brown land. Swordplay 2012 is destined to be the biggest and best.

This year Swordplay 2012 features the return of Puck Curtis from the Destreza Translation and Research Project to run a workshop in Spanish rapier fencing.

There’s Skill-at-Arms tourneys in three weapons systems this year: longsword, rapier and sidesword.

As always, there’s plenty of opportunities to meet other who share your passion for swords, fencing and history.

If you’re not at Swordplay 2012, you’re just not serious.
