    When giving and receiving advice from others regarding any contact sport, your peers are often great references.  We encourage discussion and the sharing of experiences so that all may learn.

    However, there is a difference between discussion and formal instructional material posted by an authority on the subject.

    Only instructors recognized by Saber Forum's Resident Masters may post formal instructional material.  I'm sure you can tell the difference, but to be clear, a post saying "Here is how I do this" is quite a bit different than a post stating "This is the right way to do this".

    We only want experienced instructors posting instructional material here because we don't want people getting hurt.  We want the instructional information posted in this section to be tested, reliable, and vetted by those with the proper training and experience.

    Saber Forum's Resident Masters establish the standards for acceptance into their order.  Until further notice the minimum standards for consideration are:

You must be a licensed instructor with a nationally recognized pugilistic sports institution or association and have a school or class that you teach regularly.

Our current resident Masters are:


Master Artorius Vidnyl
  • Certified 3rd Dan Kyo Sa Nim, 2005 reviewed by Master Rick Silver, International Taekwon-Do Federation Standard
  • Weapons Curriculum Instructor, Demonstration Team Instructor/Captain, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Assistente de Mestre

Master Nero Attoru
  • 3rd Season Assistant Fencing Coach for Lafayette College. His 2010-11 squad saw eight fencers qualify for NCAA Regionals

  • Certified Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Functional movement and post-rehab specialist for the past six years

Master Lucien Kane
  • Shodan in Shorin Ryu, with 12+ years of experience
  • 4 years experience in Marine Corps Martial Arts

Master VorNach
  • Background as both student and teacher in Hung-ga, a tiger-crane style of kung-f, as well as a student in several other Eastern martial arts; tai-ji, aikido and wing-chun primarily
  • Participant in the Society for Creative Anachronism as a fencer and armored combatant for 12 years
  • Instructor with the Ann Arbor Sword Club, where he teaches Historic European martial arts from the German traditions

Master Uilos

If you would like to be added to this list, please PM one of the Masters on the forum for consideration.  Thanks.[/list]

Does this mean Manroon and I are the official "Rebel Pilot Instructors!" lol.

All kidding aside, this policy is a good one, probably for the best.

Added Master BStone to the list. 

Just to reiterate, I welcome EVERYONE'S knowledge.  So please, share your experiences, give tips, share regimens, plan get togethers, pick each other's brains, tell us what you have found to work or not work, theorycraft - all the fun things that make this forum great!

But for the sake of credibility and liability, leave the class room instruction to our Resident Masters.  Thanks, and keep posting!

I think two Raven sabers need to be donated to BStone for a display / US advertisement at the Two Ravens Fencing School!

And if I can add a little correction on Master Novastar's credentials : the FFE is Fédération Française d'Escrime. Just my little "French touch" Wink
