Subject:        Swordplay Primer

Fight Director John Brogan is currently working on a book of essential
information for beginners in swordplay.  The book was begun as a joint
project with Patrick Crean, the reknowned Canadian fight director, and
John was able to collect a large number of stories, tips, teaching
techniques before Paddy fell ill.

As the book comes together, John has been wondering what sort of
information teachers, actors and students would be most interested in.
Are you primarily interested in learning how to teach swordplay, safety
tips to prevent injury, methodology, anecdotes?  At this time, the only
fixed part of the book is Paddy's title, "The Actor's Primer to Safe and
Inventive Swordplay."

If you have any suggestion, requests, desires or comments, please send
them off-list to me (
