Bonus Post -- Sword Fighting References

A couple of the sword fighters from the RWNZ demonstration sat next to me at the lunch that followed their demo, and I picked their brains a bit.  Here are some internet sites they said had good, authentic information on sword fighting.

ARMA Association for Rennaissance Martial Arts.  Covers both the Middle Ages and the Rennaissance.  Focuses on serious study of the fighting techniques of that period.  I've checked out this and it's got a wealth of information, including demo videos of fighting from various time periods.

Stoccata School of Defense. Focuses on the Renaissance and beyond, with a small amount on the late Middle Ages.

Sword Forum International.  Focuses mostly in the weapons themselves.
