Beginner Classes

We accept students of all experience levels age 16 and older.  Beginners only need to bring comfortable clothing, we have basic loaner gear available for you to begin your training safely.  During your beginner training you'll learn the seven basic strikes of longsword fencing, and how to use them when fencing. Beginner classes will focus on good body mechanics, and control.  Once you pass the beginner test you may attend our regular classes.  

The beginner course is $40.

The beginner classes will start on June 19th.

Beginner classes are held privately with Brian.

Regular Class Schedule

Intermediate to advanced students learn more complex swordplay from the material that was written in Il Fior di Battaglia, by Fiore Dei Liberi in 1409. We highly encourage students to go out and compete in tournaments and attend events in the region or abroad when they are ready, but it is not required. 

Longsword classes are currently outdoors so there are no dues.
