Hi everybody. Been lurking around the various forums for a bit and been holding off on buying until just recently. My wife and I are finally breaking down and buying some sabers in the net week or two. Long story short, it seems that there are no active groups...or even groups in NC that are dueling or learning, etc. If there are, they are pretty hush, hush because I have searched and no luck.
So, we decided to start a group and see if there was enough people in the area to finally get a group going.
When it comes to swords, sabers, etc. I have almost no experience. I did some heavy weapons training with SCA combat when I was much younger, and my martial arts training was varied, but never included bladed weapons so to speak. My wife was a fencer in college.
So basically we are both novices, but want to learn and explore this path with others. We have a large yard that is great outdoor practices and centrally located in the Research Triangle Park area.
Anyway, hope there are others out there like us with open minds and a desire to learn and meet others with like interest. We have decided not to have a Star Wars sounding name because we want to ensure people know we welcome all fandoms and interests, so we went with Triangle Dueling Corps when we made our Facebook page this morning.
Have a happy holidays!
