Houston Museum of Natural Science
February 3, 2012 the ARMA North Siders were invited
to demonstrate for Teacher Late Nights at the Houston
Museum of Natural Science. Representing ARMA were Kyle
Cook, Stacy Clifford, Wes White, John Schmidt, Patrick McClain,
Jonathan Davis, Jonathan Suarez, Daniel Burch, and Riley Rasmussen.
Approximately 40 Houston area teachers were in attendance
for a museum program on Medieval history topics. The demonstration
covered common myths about swords and armor, training drills
and exercises, and plenty of sparring with a longswords, sword
& buckler, sword & dagger, longsword vs. staff, and
even a bit of dagger fighting. Afterward teachers were invited
to examine the weapons on our display tables and ask questions,
and we received several requests for future school demonstrations.
