Our instructors have practiced medieval swordsmanship for many years. They intensely study and analyze period manuscripts as well as secondary sources. They travel to seminars and events regularly to exchange ideas with other subject matter experts. Training is primarily geared toward the teachings of German Master Johannes Liechtenauer.

Classes are geared toward student needs, with breakout groups for differing levels of experience. As with all sports, muscle memory is critical to success in competition. It is recommended that more advanced students purchase their own equipment to practice at home. Classes are planned in advance with formal curriculum at their core.

Subject matter experts have aided in developing a warm up curriculum to both build strength and stretch the body, thus preventing injury.
