Fiore Virtual Book Club

Since we’re mostly stuck at home and cannot practice or study in-person, we’ve decided to start an online book club to read and discuss Fiore. We started with the longsword sections (sword in one hand, sword in two hands, sword vs armor) with primary interest on the art itself and secondary interest in application to SCA combat forms. For more information see our Facebook page for the book club at

For people unable to get a book in time for the club, I have made slides for the meetings. The slides are just close crops of the plates from the Getty museum’s own scans plus Hatcher’s translation for the text, my highlighting of the move instructions in the text, and a few pictures of our group doing a particular play or two.

Meetings are at 7pm Eastern US Time every other Sunday evening

We’ve now completed our full pass through the Getty manuscript and are no longer meeting. At some point in the future we may repeat all or part of the book club if there is interest. Let us know.
