Thread Name: Freemasonry and Sword Dancing
Subject: RE: Freemasonry and Sword Dancing
I came across a throwaway reference in a history of the Templars in which it the English were impressed at the way the Muslim soldiers moved together and thought it was due to the dances they did and so took the dances back to England as part of their training exercises. Nothing was given to support this assertion.
