Merry Christmas from Academie Duello


Merry Christmas to all the wonderful practitioners of swordplay and all of our martial arts brothers and sisters.

May your year be filled with the ringing of steel, the feel of a good blade in your hand, and the embrace of brethren at arms. I hope that before you are both the challenges that make life worthwhile, and the rewards that refuel and inspire you to strive further.

See you all in 2015!

Merry Christmas 2014
