Simon Rainier has been an enthusiast of Martial Arts his entire life, with a particular interest in medieval swordplay. Luckily for him in 2004 a school opened in his home town for just such a thing. Simon was one of the very first to join. He trained there for many years and began teaching in that time. He eventually branched out to teaching private lessons before moving to Kamloops. Once there he founded Lynx Armizare, Kamloops’ first school of Historical European Martial Arts.
