Ladyfriend and I are interested in learning to fight sword-and-board. Not fencing (I don't care for rapiers and I'm looking for something more physical). If anybody knows about options this specific, what we're really looking for is short swords and bucklers to better suit us; we're both under 120 lbs and have more the builds of distance runners than musclebound warriors. I've seen a few things online, but not much really looked promising. We're willing to drive a fair distance, but I'm really interested in anything people have personal experience with. If we can't find something I guess there's always Nerf swords and whatever you make a shield out of, but professional instruction would be better, and I kinda think this would be a fun bonding experience too.
