Title: Facebook Page and Blog Announcement!
Post by: Joshua Santana on 2017-04-24, 02:07:50
Brethren, I want to make this announcement.

Some of you have received an invitation to like a page on facebook called "The Jersey Knyght."

The answer is simple, I have decided to create a page to promote the ideal of Chivalry and to get my thoughts on HEMA and Knighthood out there.

Take a look at the Blog post which I wrote out which outlines my purpose and vision. 

Thus far, the page has received 16 likes, which I am surprised. 

Let me know what you think.  https://www.facebook.com/thejerseyknyght/ (https://www.facebook.com/thejerseyknyght/)

Unfortunately I am not on Facebook as I find it to be very un-chivalrous. However, perhaps your page will be a beacon of light for some people.

Enjoyed some of your videos. Is that the Spes traditional jacket you are wearing?

Jason: no.  I was wearing the late 14th Century Gambeson that I ordered from KoA.

Oh ok. How do you like it? I don't see too many people wearing more traditionally patterned gambesons anymore. It adds diversity and I like that not everyone is clad in complete black.

The gambeson feels great when moving about and it is thick enough to absorb blows but not enough for thrusts.  However this should not detract from its functionality.  Overall I am satisfied with the gambeson and Koa has a good price on it.

That is the point of the page, blog and Youtube channel, to be the beacon of Warrior Wisdom and Chivalry.

I've since gotten on FB and have meticulously chosen who I have as "friends." I did "like" your page and have read some of your commentary on Sir Charney's treatise. I "unfollow" or "unfriend" people who are always ranting about politics or religion, are always posting what they happen to be eating at the moment, and/or are aggressive personalities that seem to be arguing with everyone about everything. I do enjoy a couple of pages devoted to chivalry and I enjoy keeping up with friends and acquaintances who are doing similar things: HEMA, chivalry, enjoying life.

I want to thank you for your time in reading my posts on what I get out of Sir Charney's treatise and let me know what you think as I am open to discussion. 

And you echo what I do with facebook as I have managed by notification to show me what is important to me and not putting up things that are of no use to me and it helps with time management.  My purpose is to push or "preach" what is beneficial to everyone (ethical instructions & encouragement) and that is why I post many memes or pictures with quotes from De Charney, the famous Japanese Martial Arts masters etc. 

If you're on facebook send me a friend request so you can benefit from my posts and i want to add that unlike a majority of people on facebook who act normal or celebrity like on their pages but act in contrast in real life; I practice what i preach.
