It's a pleasure to read about J. P., up to his old tricks. For those who
are interested, the British, Canadian and American societies of fight
directing have, over the years, developed a common vocabulary for a wide
variety of stage combat forms (unarmed, smallsword, rapier & dagger,
etc.), and occasionally there are international stage combat workshops,
where we also meet up with experts from Russia, Norway, etc.

A grand gang of thugs, let me tell you.

Comment:        RE: SHK 13.0963 Learning Sword Fighting

"Stage Combat," including swordplay, has been offered by the Theater
Arts Dept. at Arcadia University for some time, and this summer the
Department is offering a "Camp Shakespeare" for 10year-olds through
adults, with productions to be mounted of As You Like It, Hamlet, and
Othello.

Best,
Hugh Grady
