You are invited to explore the www.sword-play.net web site and find interesting historical information about some U.S. fencers and international fencing masters. New fencers of all ages will find some recommendations about to how get started in fencing, while more experienced fencers may learn some movements that are new to them. This swordplay site is dedicated to promulgating the true nature of fencing that is based on centuries of this sport, most certainly to my former fencing masters (most of whom are no longer with us), some of whose families have taught swordplay for several generations, and also to the interesting and accomplished fencers whom I have known.
