We're sorry, but this event is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, December 4, 2019.
Students will learn the practice of classic military single-handed swords, as represented by the art of the singlestick. From the traditional Scottish broadsword that earned its fame on the fields of Sheriffmuir and Killiekrankie, and the small sword used by the duelist McBane, to the military saber and cutlass. The singlestick was a tool used to train the military as well as youth up to the turn of the 20th century.
This class will teach students about proper footwork, guards, cuts, and exercise drills to become an effective single-handed sword practitioner. Each class will build upon the former, so drop-ins are more than welcome.
