Registration

(depends on selected options)

Base fee:

Prerequisite: Students should have reached Eisenpfort rank or higher to participate in this class.  Advanced students will still also benefit from continuing to take a "TEchnical Foundations class as well.

The longsword is the core weapon of our system.

Students in this course should have a good understanding of the principles and techniques of our longsword system. The classes focus on developing a personal "doctrine" of preferred strategy, tactics, and techniques. Students will gain a better understanding distance, timing, and judgement, and how to manage them.

Every student needs a fencing mask. You can purchase one from us, or  use any modern fencing mask in good condition. 

Each 1.5 hour class includes 30 minutes of freeplay time. 

Instructors: Craig, Marla
