Hi all,

I am organising and undertaking an emprise or passage of arms at Ch√Ęteau de Castelnaud in Aquitaine on 15-16 September 2018 and am looking for fighters willing to challenge me to combat in light armour with the longsword.

The combat will employ period kit from the late 14th to early 15th century (roughly 1380-1430), and comprise an exchange of eight blows under the supervision of the marshals.

In addition to the combats, the weekend will feature talks and demonstrations by specialists in historical combat.

Details of the event and the combat rules can be found at

Anyone interested can contact me either on here or via the email address given on the website.

It's a rare opportunity to show off your skills at a gorgeous castle overlooking the Dordogne. Please pass word along to anyone you think might be interested. It promises to be a cracking event.
