GREG TSAGRIS

German Longsword Instructor

We have actually lost count of the medals that Greg has won. Active on the tournament circuit Greg is also our official "Badassador" when he is out and about cutting up the competition. Organized and professional in his instruction, Greg will broaden your understanding beyond Italian Longsword.

STEVE CROMWELL

Intro to Longsword 
Instructor

Steve has accelerated very quickly from a new member to a force to be reckoned with in a tournament. He has achieved this by consistency, training, effort and sheer will. He has worked very closely with the founder of MSC and new members in Intro classes, assisting members in finding the best ways to learn and process this learning. As we say at the Salle..."Crom wills it!"

COLIN ALLEN

Founder of MSC

For 12 years Colin has helmed the MSC in various incarnations. He has always strived to enhance the Salle's curriculum and what its members get out of their experience. Active in tournaments he has medaled in longsword, sabre & sword & buckler. Colin runs the "Mixed HEMA" training class and he is also very proud to head up the ISFC (Irish Stick Fighting Canada) arm of MSC.

IRISH STICK FIGHTING 
CANADA

Unique Division of MSC

Colin (Founder of MSC) is one of a handful of people trained in both styles of Irish Stick Fighting. Born in Belfast, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, he is very proud to bring this fast, efficient and violent traditional martial art to MSC.
