Briefed and Monte Cristo cover Duello


Some cool spots about Academie Duello showed up in a couple publications in the last two weeks.

Patrick von Stolk of Briefed.ca an online men’s magazine focusing on the Vancouver area came in and tried out Warrior Fundamentals last week. Briefed is beginning a new series of articles on fitness in the Vancouver area that’s different than your average gym visit. We were their first subject and it’s a fun article worth checking out.

Shakespeare’s Rebel keeps getting coverage (cause it was so awesome) and Amanda Jun’s article in the very stylish Monte Cristo magazine gives a great review of our Bard on the Beach, CC Humphreys collaboration. You can read the piece here. I have to say that it seems very fitting for swordplay to be covered in a magazine titled after the fantastic sword-fighting character of Alexander Dumas.
