The study of arms & armour and historical combat is inherently interdisciplinary. My research will delve into the realms of History, Art History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Forensics, and Materials Science to name just a few.
There are certain principles of combat which are universal. Regardless of the style of fighting, or its place of origin, all share a common core having been developed by humans. Thus, an exploration of all martial arts will only serve to enrich one’s own understanding and practice.
The martial arts world also contains a rich and diverse philosophical tradition. I will explore martial philosophy in all of its manifestations, past and present, including surveys of particular traditions and practices.
You can find articles and videos on these and many other topics on my blog, with additional content found on my Patreon page.
