Thank you all! It was an awesome event and I witnessed some of the most incredible fighters. It was truly an honor to be among such folks dedicated to resurrecting these lost martial arts, in fact I dare say those arts are no longer lost and is well on its way to becoming more renowned. :)

Yes right up to this mornings coaching/dueling class with the Live steel champion Axel Petterson. In the last duel the same kid that gave me my only defeat in the first round pool got my index finger pretty good but otherwise I dominated him...had to get my 'backs' on the kid. In the next year or so he'll likely mop the floor with me! ;)

The video of all the finals are suppose to be uploaded in a week or two.
I can't wait because Sir Edward and I missed most of the finals since we were
squires for Jess Finley and Sean Hayes getting armored up for their harnischfechten
demonstration at the awards dinner.  :)

No but I did get some compliments on my kit in that I was very 'green' which convinced me they really should have a best dressed category at these events as I may be a serious contender! ;)

Here is a picture of my first match in the elimination round against an awesome fighter Michaelangelo Reina, I'm still not exactly sure if he had made an attack against my blade while I was preparing my own attack or what but it was a beautiful disarm. If I recall I actually grabbed his blade in a futile attempt to stop him from giving me the coup de grace. :)

** update **
Angel posted a youtube video on his FB page.

I really got a break when he accidentially trip. I would have definitely lost if he didn't have that mishap.
