Join Academie Duello's popular historical swordplay classes for home learners! In our downtown Vancouver Centre for Swordplay students will learn the basics of a modern swordplay practice rooted in the historical traditions of the 15th - 17th centuries. The material is taught through fun games and co-operative activities, with a strong focus on safety, control, and effective development of motor skills. This course is open to students ages six and up.
This course focuses on the medieval art of the two-handed longsword, as practiced in the early 1400's and recorded by the Italian condottierro Fiore dei Liberi. Older students will get the opportunity to practice medieval self defence techniques against dagger-wielding opponents!
