(Ages 12 and Above)
Ever wanted to learn how to Swashbuckle? Swing a longsword like Henry Cavill in The
Witcher? Fight hand to hand like Black Widow?
For this Weapon Series, we will be focusing our study on the sword. Single sword, to be precise. Over the next 10 weeks, participants in this class will learn and practice the basics of Single Sword: the stances, the movement, the hand positions, how to hold a sword, the parries, and the attacks. Not only will the participants be learning and practicing single sword techniques, they will also learn a short piece of fight choreography that will gradually be taught over the course of the series. By the end of the 10 weeks, the participants will have a better understanding and familiarity handling and wielding a single sword as well as a piece of choreography that they can perform.
No actual weapons are required because in this class we will use common household items to learn the basics of weapon work, in the context of Performance Combat. Can be done solo or with a partner.
The classes are grouped into “Weapon Series”, meaning a series of classes will focus on a singular weapon and each class will build upon the knowledge of previous classes. This does not mean that you cannot do a single drop-in of the series, but those who sign up and participate in the whole series will receive a deeper understanding and appreciation of the weapon being studied as they will have more practice and familiarity with the material and weapon.
*This class is for a Drop-In of one of the 10 classes in the Weapon Series of Singe Sword. Please double-check the date when purchasing a Drop-In as there are 10 of them.*
Please note that the price for the 10 weeks of the series is $150, which works out to be $15 per class, but the Drop-Ins are $20 per class.
This class requires a room with about 6ft of free and cleared space. See the Safety Info (right) and the Required Materials sections (below) for what you need to bring to class.
