For All Ye Swordfighters

Tonight I went to see Reclaiming the Blade, a documentary about the loss, recreation and revival of the Western Martial arts centered on swordfighting. It was really quite good. Not as in depth as perhaps the more knowledgeable among you might like, but it covers a good bit of ground, including movie and stage fight choreography. The DVD (of course I bought it) has 4 extra hours of footage and information.

It was premiered here because the producer is a Clemson graduate and several portions were filmed in and around Clemson University.
