What will you learn:

For ages 18 and up, our curriculum covers a wide range of historical techniques. The Level 1 course starts from the ground up with stepping and basic body mechanics. Drills in this course are focused around the Longsword. Students will also be introduced to simple grappling techniques, and will be shown the variety of tools and equipment used in historical fencing. Steel training swords are provided for use in class.

The Level 2 course builds upon the skills taught in Level 1 while introducing students to more Longsword and Half-Sword techniques. These techniques are drawn from such sources as the Wurttemberg, Gladiatoria, Ringeck, Fior di Battaglia, Codex Wallerstein, and others. Before the end of each class time is allocated for Free-Play; time for students to train freely with a partner or in a group in various levels of protection. Veteran students also attend these classes and help with instruction of students and development of techniques for the curriculum.
