Greetings to all!

I'm pleased to announce that the New York Historical Fencing Association has been brought into the Selohaar family as our 2nd remote Fechtschule chapter.

NYHFA will continue to be headed by my student and friend, Mr. Michael Edelson, and will retain its website, www.newyorklongsword.com, in addition to their page on the Selohaar site.

Please join me in congratulating Mike and his stalwart students as we welcome them into the Selohaar Fechtschule!

All the best,

Christian Tobler

I've met him, and he's a fine fellow. I'm sure he'll do you proud.

I would also like to formally state that I am pea green with envy at his rapid advancement. Wink

Thanks for the support guys. I'm very excited about this, not just for what it represents for me and my group, but for WMA in general. We're spreading, growing and reaching out to more and more people.



I have dibs on the first McDojo. Happy


For those of you from the seminar, thank you for your kind words. I'm glad I could be of help.

Hey Mike and all -

I realized last night that I hadn't sent my regards to you yet! Congratulations!

We're now sister schools of a sort, which means that I absolutely have no excuse to not make your next event. *grin*

Way to go, guys,
Jess
