Prerequisite: Students must have completed the Novice Longsword course to register for this class.
This class is our foundational course for medieval wrestling (Ringen) and dagger. Students will learn how to fall safely, techniques for wrestling at the arms and body, and techniques with the rondel dagger in armoured and unarmoured contexts.
Every student needs a fencing mask. You can purchase or rent one from us, or use any modern fencing mask in good condition.
Loaner daggers are available for student use. Gloves are encouraged but not mandatory. Long sleeves are encouraged.
Each 90 minute class includes 30 minutes of freeplay time.
Instructors: Matthew, Marla
