Reccomended clubs for German longsword to put in new book

Postby TheDude » 20 Nov 2007 16:54

Hi,

I have a chapter in my book on German Longsword entitled Studying Western Martial Arts. In this section I discuss the best way to study these martial arts by joining a good club, researching the texts and exploring sites such as this one. I would like to mention particulars club and websites that are considered useful to these people.

I do not want to mention any groups or sites without permission so if it is ok please could you post here along with a single sentence describing what is special or important about your club or website.

If you do not want anything mentioned then also please let me know.

Kind regards

Wouldn't it be better to point them to a website featuring links and/or addresses of groups instead?

Paper is rather inflexible.

No I don't think pointing people to a link in the book is a good plan, the whole point of a book is that it cannot be changed and is how it is when printed, it is of its time.

Your own? :wink:

You could also create a new website specifically for the book.

Yes, but what's the advantage of that?

Addresses and URLs of other groups can quickly change, and what's their use then?

Just think if you were looking at a historical manual now, and instead of telling you which clubs exist and where, it says see document .... How miffed would you be? A book is a creation of its time and is and always will be a glimpse of that period. Plus as has been said by the dude, the book will be continually updated. It will link to the AHF website as well anyway, but I still think a written list is the way to go in the book itself
