The Fencing Grounds podcast is an engaging conversation over your morning coffee about the history related to and research of Early Modern combat and Culture during the Reformation Period. Welcome to the table, let's talk of the life and times of the most renowned 16th century fencing master Joachim Meyer. Let's talk about training and thinking tactically. 
Thank you for supporting the research, effort, time and caffeine intake doing this requires. Seriously, thanks. I want to show my thanks by letting my Patrons always have early access to content and a direct path to asking questions that could be answered live on the show.  Also any B-reel mischiefs, patrons certainly should have access.

About Living Meyer

My name is Chris VanSlambrouck, and I have spent more than a decade learning and teaching the fencing methodology of Master Joachim Meyer. Of course, this fencing method comes to us from the books and manuscripts that Meyer produced in the 16th century. I have devoted myself to the translation, interpretation, and recreation of his art. 

I am working on several projects to facilitate the transmission of what I have learned to others who are interested in Meyer's teaching. I am developing many mediums to communicate this information including books, videos, podcasts, and other instructional materials. I want to share this journey with you. 

As my patron, you will have access to our online study group for the discussion of Meyer and other fun stuff as things coalesce over time. We will meet once a week for about an hour. For each session, I will give a 10-20 minute lecture on some aspect of Meyer followed by time for you to ask me questions or discuss with the group. Your questions may be about the topic of the lecture or you may ask any questions about understanding some other aspect Meyer. If your question takes longer than we have to resolve, it may become the topic of next week's study group. My goal is to help you deepen your understanding of Meyer, and coach and mentor you as I am able remotely- especially during this time when it is more difficult to attend classes or spar with our friends.
