Mondays 4:15 - 5:30 pm - Our youth dueling sword & sabre program specially designed for ages 12 - 15!   They'll build strength and coordination along with their fencing skills!  This class is similar to our adult program, but is meant for young adults to learn in a safe, age appropriate setting.  Sabre and Sword area combat sport based on the dueling practices of 19th century Europe; they continue today in modified form as Olympic sports. During the tumultuous 19th century in Italy, political problems were often taken to the dueling ground, a tradition based on knightly combats of earlier centuries. The weapons of choice were the dueling sabre or dueling sword: elegant weapons employed with skill and precision. We teach Italian dueling sabre & sword as it was taught then, and we have a direct lineage, teacher to student, to the great Italian masters of the 19th century. It’s a serious art, but the enjoyment of training and testing skills with others is unmatched!
