Hi all,
here is a little introduction of ourselves: We are the Meyer study group from Sumus Soldani, a little fencing group from Kontich, Belgium that is founded May 18, 2009. Since the start we have been studying and training the longsword in the Liechtenauer/Ringeck tradition and this will remain the main focus of our guided trainings. Next to our regular training on sunday, we also have a free/research training on wednesday. It is on this training that we have started with the study of Joachim Meyer a few months ago and with the help of Krist Martens we have a translation to our native language dutch of the longsword chapters which helps us in interpreting the 'old german' transcript that we use.

We are more than happy to join the guild and I hope that we can contribute to the interpretations and research of the works of Joachim Meyer.

With kind regards,
Davy Van Elst
