I live in Anderson, IN (close to Indianapolis) and am trying to find a WMA group to join. I wouldn't mind driving an hour or so once a week. Anyone here belong to or know of a group in that area?

Hi,

I'm afraid it's a bit of a drive away, but I think the group nearest to you is the Chicago Swordplay Guild.

Best wishes

I'm interested in this as well. Unfortunately Chicago is an even longer drive for me since I'm about an hour and a half south east of Indy. I'd never get back in time for work!

Hellooo!

I so often feel very alone in this state. Cry Wink

I'm about an hour to an hour and a half west of Indianapolis (speed varying). Terre Haute, Clinton, Rockville area. Work schedule is pretty sporadic but I'm trying to get it settled down.

I drive a lot for my primary job so I try to keep personal driving somewhat to a minimum, but if anyone is interested in driving to me, then heck yeah! (I don't mean to seem lazy, but sorry, I put 3,000 miles on my truck per month now).

They have forums too. Big Grin

Hello all,

I live in Carmel, which is just north of Indianapolis. I've been studying Ringeck on and off fo rhte past two years wih my training partner in West Lafayette (where I go to school). But because of work and school I've slacked off a lot lately. I would definitely be interested in meeting once a week on Saturday if anyone wants to train this summer. RD, what is your WMA background?

Sorry if I seemed to be ignoring repliesĖ Iíve basically spent every waking hour of the last 4 days at work. Sad

To answer your question, Jeff, I really donít have a background in WMAĖ Iím very interested in learning, though, and thought Iíd be better off if I could practice basic skills with a group that knows what theyíre doing, rather than trying to learn everything from manuals. Iím happy to do in-depth research, but it seems like Iíd develop less bad habits while Iím getting started if I had someone to correct any gross errors. Right now, Iím working most Saturdays, but that could probably be adjusted.

How about you, Mike, are you a newbie like me, or do you have some experience? Either way, it would be good to just have someone to test ideas/skills with.

If you want to get a good jump on WMA basics, we are having a Italian Longsword Seminar this weekend. It is being taught by Schola St. George founder Brian Price. We still have 3 slots open and it is only $50 for both days.

Drop me a line if you are interested and I can hold your spot.

Cheers,
