|Tim began studying the art of the sword as a stage-combatant. However, while working in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tim stumbled across the Dawn Duellists Society and its somewhat mad president, Paul Macdonald. Upon learning that this group studied and practiced historic technique, Tim immediately threw himself into the fray, and has not wised up since.After returning to the States, Tim and his friend Jared Kirby founded the New Dawn Duellists Society in Minneapolis, MN.
Tim Ruzicki is a leading authority on classical European pugilism and has been training in boxing for over twenty years, and historic forms of Western Martial Arts for the past fifteen. For the last ten years he has been studying, training in, and teaching bare-knuckle pugilism, gathering information from eighteenth and nineteenth century source material devoted to the art. Tim has been teaching for many years in a variety of historic western weapons and unarmed styles.
Currently, he is an instructor at Salle Saint-George, in Seattle, WA.
