Hi Noah, nice to see someone else here from a group who has a few padded weapons in their aresenal... many of these Europeans will only use some kind of chop sticks of some sort.

Hi BD,
at ACT we believe in training with a combination of the different tools available, i.e. steel, wood and simulators.
each tool allows for different aspects of skills to develop.
we are not dogmatic about anything i can think of right now.

I agree Noah, I was just kidding. I think most HEMA pracitioners take a similar approach to training with a variety of simulators, as Matt indicated Schola has had this doctrine a long time and call it triangulation. Some folks here have a strong aversion to any type of padded weapon, but are likable in most other respects ;).
