Looking for a gift for that special someone? This is perfect! Give the gift of sword fighting to them. You can send him or her to the class, or you can attend with him! If you know of anyone that you think would enjoy this class, please pass the information onto them or give me a call for more information.

This is a four hour intensive class for the students of the sword that would like to attend class at the school but lives out of the area or just don't have the time to commit each week to class.

Every month we gather for four hours to study the long sword. The first three hours are spent on the curriculum of the school and the final hour is spent working on a specific technique from Fior dei Battaglia (Flos Duellatorum written in 1409).

DEMAS has loaner equipment for the students that do not have their own swords or helmets, all you need to bring are gloves. If you have your own wasters and helmet, please bring them with you.

 

We will be working outside with masks and maintaining an appropriate distance to protect ourselves, our friends, and our family.

January 10th: Sword and Buckler Workshop

 

In this class we will be learning how to use the sword and buckler in the Renaissance tradition. The ‘Side Sword’ or Spada da Lato It is a continuation of the medieval arming sword, and the immediate predecessor (or early form) of the rapier of the Early Modern period. Its use was taught in the Dardi school of Italian fencing, and was influential on the classical rapier fencing of the 17th century.

In this class we will learn how to use the sword to cut, thrust and defend ourselves within those actions. Every offensive movement should be defensive, and every defensive movement should be offensive. While learning how to use the sword we will also be learning footwork that will take you in and out of distance of your opponent.

Dress of the day is sweats, a t-shirt and comfortable shoes. Bring your mask, your gloves and if you have an arm guard bring that as well. We will have loaner sword and bucklers. There is a limited supply, so they are first come first serve.
