Nanaimo Combat Guild (Beban Park) - Historical Fencing Class #22 (New students welcome!), 20 August | AllEvents.in Nanaimo Combat Guild (Beban Park) - Historical Fencing Class #22 (New students welcome!)
Historical Fencing, a modern take on an Medieval martial art...

*** These ongoing Longsword classes welcome, beginners and veterans, young and old, he, she, or they.

*** We learn techniques derived from the historical manuals of Joachim Meyer, Paulus Hector Mair, Ringeck, and others, plus the instructor's personal fencing experience and learning from other clubs.

*** We also practice Rapier & Dagger, Sword & Buckler, Singlestick, Dussack, Rondel Daggers, Quarterstaff, Sword & Shield, but only bringing these to this class upon request...

*** Class consist of a warmup, brief lesson, partner drills, and then a combination of sparring and more intense drills wearing/using appropriate safety equipment (armour and padded swords).

*** Bring appropriate gym attire and a bottle of water...

*** Sparring is divided into:

-Padded: padded sword with helmet and gloves for new students...

-Synthetic: full protective kit with synthetic weaponry for students whom have demonstrated technique and control over weeks of practice...

-Steel: full protective kit with blunt steel weaponry for students no longer considered beginners...

*** Youth (<16) may only spar at the Padded level against other youth, or the instructor. Size and control matter because concussions and other injuries matter!

*** We suggest 11-55 years old as an age bracket, but I've had students as young as 6 (with a parent to manage melt-downs) to as old as 65 (health dependant). If you have ongoing injuries, be sure to let us know! If you're not sure, message me or Email me at Y29tb3h2YWxsZXljb21iYXRndWlsZCB8IGdtYWlsICEgY29t

*** Drop-in Membership is $25 per person per class.

*** We require a unique Email Address, name, and the signing of a waiver (online or paper) to become a Member. (<16 must have a parent sign)

*** Space and equipment are limited. You claim your spot by contacting us to get signed-up, booked-in, and payment-in via CreditCard or Etransfer to Y29tb3h2YWxsZXljb21iYXRndWlsZCB8IGdtYWlsICEgY29t...

*** Classes currently run weekly, but some are at Coombs Fairgrounds and Events Centre...
