Trainer Bio
Tim joined NYHFA in 2013 as part of the first class at SwordclassNYC.  He comes from a stage combat background, and has since given up on that in favor of a more martial approach.  Tim is NYHFA’s Sword and Buckler instructor in NYC, and teaches a curriculum based on the teachings of Andre Liegnitzer, with bits from MS I.33 applied throughout.  He is also working on small study groups involving Paurñfeydt’s Longsword, and Marozzo’s Opera Nova.
