Jake Norwood, head instructor at Maryland Kunst des Fechtens, former president of the Historical European Martial Arts Alliance, and top-rated competitive historical fencer in the US:

"Roland's approach to sword and buckler is the most efficient, coherent, and elegant I've ever worked with. I have come to expect nothing less from Roland, who brings a fighter's passion to training, instruction, and research. I respect his skill and insight immensely; I would never pass up a chance to work with him."
