Fear is the enemy. I can't let it define me. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
I had to turn the fear into courage or I would never succeed. I had to finish my story. I had to face the next blank page and new possibilities.
I took a deep breath and pressed the keys: T-H-E E-N-D.
If you like Renaissance fencing, check out Andrew Kenner's latest edition of his book, I33: Fencing in the Style of the Walpurgis Manuscript. The second edition (with revisions and corrections) is now available in both a black and white paperback version and a colour hard cover version. The first edition was published in 2014.
Andrew Kenner is a historical re-enactor and an accomplished renaissance rapier fighter, interested in historical fighting styles. In 2013, he decided to write a book.
Andrew studied the original Walpurgis Manual (MS I.33), a German fencing manual dating back to the 1320s. The original is currently held at the Leeds Royal Armoury. He spent months recreating the style and wrote a manual, with diagrams and photographs, to explain his findings.I attended the photoshoot for the book and was commissioned to do the artwork.
