Happy to announce that I have now received the following certifications from the SAFD in these categories:
Unarmed: Recommended Pass
Rapier and Dagger: Recommended Pass
Small Sword: Recommended Pass
Quarterstaff: Recommended Pass
Broadsword: Recommended Pass
In March, I tested to receive Basic Passes in Rapier and Dagger and Small Sword. I wasn't satisfied, so in addition to the two new weapons for the quarter, I chose to spend another eight weeks re-training and working to up my level. Glad it paid off!
I have also chosen to join as a member of the SAFD as an Actor Combatant. Only one more weapon and I'll jump to an Advanced Actor Combatant. What a great way to end the school year!
