I am a lifelong student of history and Martial arts, with over 30 years of experience. My journey started with Eastern and mixed martial arts as a child. As an adult, I was introduced to US Army Combatives and Historical Fencing.
As an advocate, practitioner, researcher and instructor of Historical Fencing, I have founded several historical fencing groups including the Madison MFFG (of which I am the principal instructor) and the Meyer Freifechter Guild (of which I am currently president).
I enjoy focusing my energies and teachings on being an outspoken advocate specifically for the study of Joachim Meyer and the application of his art through the combat sport of the Early New Modern Period, the Fechtschule.
