Director of Veritas Swordplay Academy, Eric Slyter has been researching medieval and renaissance arms and armour actively since 1993.
Eric has been studying Western Martial Arts since 2002, with his primary track of study being the medieval arts of the German master Johannes Liechtenauer. He's a student of noted expert and author Christian H. Tobler, and has trained in traditional medieval German weapons such as longsword, pole axe, dagger, hand-to-hand combat, spear, sword & buckler and messer. Eric has also studied Italian rapier, Scottish broadsword and a variety of other Western Martial Arts, always eager to expand his knowledge.
Eric was granted the title Free Scholar when Veritas Swordplay Academy became a chapter of the Selohaar Fechtschule in 2007. Eric brings this expertise of arms, armour, knighthood, chivalry and combat to the public with Knights of Veritas educational presentations for schools, libraries, museums and other partners.
