John Mellon

Technical Advisor

John Mellon was born in Glasgow and comes of Irish and Scots ancestry on his father’s side and Italian stock on his mother’s. He began training at the age of 4 with his Sicilian grandfather in the family fencing system, La Famiglia Porrelli Scherma di Siciliano dating back to the 11th century when his forebears were sword-masters to the Dukes of Sicily. In recent years many groups have formed throughout the Western world attempting to revive the traditional European combative fencing systems, largely through the study of a handful of ancient texts. John however is, as far as he knows, the only exponent living of an extant combat fencing system.
