Acadamie Duello Sword Play and History Classes

Home Learners Course - Winter 2015

Join Academie Duello's popular historical swordplay classes for home learners! Over 5 classes, students will learn the basics of a modern swordplay practice rooted in the historical traditions of the 15th, 16th, & 17th centuries. This course is open to students ages six and up.

The material is taught through fun games and co-operative activities, with a strong focus on safety, control, and effective motor-skills development.

This particular course focuses on the medieval art of the two-handed longsword, as practiced in the early 1400s, and recorded by the Italian condottierro Fiore dei Liberi. Older students will also get the opportunity to practice medieval self defence techniques against dagger-wielding opponents!
