Dr. Price has been fighting in armour since 1981, at first within the SCA, where he earned a knighthood and won Crown Tournament (Caid, 1987), starting out in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During the late 1980s he spent considerable time analyzing the SCA's behourd fighting style. He was recognized as a laurel for his armour, and he authored Techniques of Medieval Armour Reproduction in 2000 (available from Amazon), which remains the "armourer's bible." In 1992, he co-founded the Company of Saint George, which sought to encourage chivalric conduct through more authentic tournament formats, for which he edited Chronique, the Journal of Chivalry (1992-1999). The Company of Saint George and their signature pas d'armes format inspired many others to follow in what became the Tournament Companies movement. In 1992 he wrote an essay volume, The Book of the Tournament (available from Amazon), which introduced the idea of renown as "the coin of the tourneyer," still a core principle in medieval-style feats of arms.
In 1999, he co-founded the SSG--alongside Dr. Robert Holland. The first SSG class was run in the San Fransisco Bay area, and the SSG continues there today. He was the SSG's founding President, building the SSG until 2011 when he deployed to Afghanistan. In 2007, he consolidated his curriculum into the 2007 book, The Sword in Two Hands. Since then he has edited several other books, such as Teaching & Interpreting Historical Swordsmanship and has written a number of articles for Medieval History Magazine and one for the Journal of Medieval Military History (2018). He received his doctorate in 2011, writing "The Martial Arts of Medieval Europe." Upon his return from Afghanistan, he founded the SSG Honolulu.
Martially, he enjoys especially the sword in one hand, spear, sword in two hands, poleaxe, and sword and buckler, in and out of armour. He is especially fond of armour from the late fourteenth century, but as a soft place for Northern Italian armour of the 15th century as well as mid-century alla tedesca (Italian, but made in the German style).
Dr. Price is an Associate Professor at Hawai'i Pacific University, where he teaches mainly graduate courses in American military history, strategy and counterinsurgency. Presently he is researching books on the Air Force modernization in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the struggle for the services to integrate socio-cultural knowledge. Many of his writings may be seen on his Academia.edu page.
