Longsword is the foundation of our combat system. Students wishing to study other weapons at Ottawa Swordplay must complete our Novice Longsword program first.
The Novice Longsword program is a 10 week course. Students in the course are introduced to our core Novice techniques. Intermediate students participate in the classes for review and as experienced training partners.
Every student needs a fencing mask. You can purchase or rent one from us, or use any modern fencing mask in good condition.
Each 1.5 hour class includes 30 minutes of freeplay time.
