Children’s classes teach the fundamentals of Knightly Combat (two-handed swords within the Italian tradition) to students between 6 and 12. There is some flexibility around ages, considered on a case by case basis and older teenagers are encouraged to join our adult classes.
Students learn how to wield a sword safely using foam and wooden replica swords to demonstrate and practice defensive and offensive techniques, and also learn the associated wrestling skills. Students will occasionally have the opportunity to work with steel swords when they are ready.
Classes are held on Saturday mornings 9:30 am to 10:30 am and organised on a term basis, following the terms of Victorian public schools.
