Formal Academia in New Orleans

On September 20th, 2015 –  The Martinez Academy of Arms and its affiliate schools hosted an Academia at Kingsley House in New Orleans. The Academia is an event where the masters of a school hold public tests and judge the ability and progress of their students. We chose New Orleans as our gathering place to hold our Academia because of its cultural and historical importance in regard to fencing and dueling in the 19th century.
