I am new to this. I have done some fighting before, but it was rough and I usually lost. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can approve?

To add to what Bo said, never hesitate to square up with better fighters. They often have a lot to teach, and most are more than willing to pass on a few tips and tricks.

Don't be afraid of anyone, don't get discouraged when you lose, do try anything you feel like, do go to as many practices, day battles, and events as you can.

If you fight someone and they smoke you, try to hunt them down later and get some sparring.

Also, Bo's last points are great. Be athletic and ready. Good cardio makes fighting a whole day a lot easier.

Single sword, off-hand twice as much as sword-hand. All day at least once a month. Preferably more. It will be frustrating at first but will see you dividends in return.
But I'm a sadist like that.
