Finally, our experiences and impressions of the Historic Medieval Battle meeting we attended in Novi, Michigan. A fascinating experience made possible by Rich Elswick, and the Detroit Fight Club. https://www.facebook.com/DetroitFightClub
Apologies for some of the poor audio quality in the interviews. Guys hitting other guys in armor makes for a lot of background noise. Who’da thought?
We had hoped to get our impressions of the Historic Medieval Battle combats out this week. We had a great time and talked to some interesting folks and saw some terrific fighting. Reviewing all the interview clips and editing them into our podcast along with our impressions is more challenging than we anticipated. But We are working on it, and hope to put it out as our next release.
A special thanks to Rich Elswick for hooking us up and getting us in. As well as all the generous people that took time to talk to us. So you should anticipate a very interesting Chapter very soon. Look for it!
We are all taught as children that being honest and truthful is ‘Good,’ and that lying and being dishonest is ‘Bad.’ We try to look at how the virtue of honesty is manifest in modern life and how, to varying degrees, it is virtuous. We also examine how, without being tempered by other virtues such as compassion, honesty can become a vice.
To the medieval knight, courage in battle was paramount. In this chapter we talk about how courage is manifested in modern day life and the circumstances that are more likely to be faced today.
In our second foray into the Knightly Virtues, we discuss and compare our personal philosophies; Ethical Pragmatism and the Social Contract. These are the frameworks that we use to navigate the intricacies of modern life and the lens through which we view chivalric behavior in our modern lives.

Hi everyone. In the first chapter of our podcast, The Everyday Knight, we will discuss the chivalric or knightly virtues. We will draw upon many traditional lists of virtues, as we seek to develop a list for exploration and discussion of each virtue in subsequent chapters.
Chapter 1, Part 1 of 3
Please join us, and let us know what you think about the virtues, and how you apply them to your everyday life! Parts 2 and 3 are below.
