    We've been working hard getting our new Sword Hall at 1760 St Laurent Blvd ready for the past few months. Even though we've been running classes during the summer, it's really been our set-up phase. We are proud to announce that our official Grand Opening will be Saturday September 7th!

    At Noon we will have a ribbon cutting ceremony and cake to celebrate. Then, from 12:30 to 4:00, we will run an open house with free introductory lessons, clay target cutting, reproduction armour and swords to handle and learn about, and more! Our instructors will be on hand to tell you about our classes and curriculum, or answer your questions about swords and swordplay.

    We offer classes for adults and youth aged 8 years and up, and all ages are welcome at the Grand Opening. Drop in any time from 12:00-4:00, but if you want to try a free lesson, it is best to reserve a timeslot to avoid disappointment!

    We invite you to join us in celebrating the opening of our fantastic new Sword Hall!

    We've had a very busy week preparing for and hosting Points North Longsword Tournament. It was a huge success, and a ton of fun!

    But that doesn't mean we get to slack off! Today we posted our schedule of courses for the fall! We have a few more to add that we need to confirm details on, but the majority of fall classes are open for registration! 

    Don't forget, if you sign up for a paid membership, you get discounts on all of our classes and workshops, including free access to all of our fight nights and open training nights. And starting this fall, all paid memberships give you free access to our Lunchtime Longsword and Conditioning for HEMA classes!

    We've added some new features for our members!

    We've created some discussion Forums, and we will adapt those as we find out how to make them best serve you! Right now there are forums to discuss class material, organization/administration, and just to socialize and chat.

    For the time being, we are reserving these forums for our active members only.

    In addition, we've added an "event" which is actually the opportunity to rent a bin to keep your gear in. We will also provide a place to put your sword. Just remember to take your jacket home and wash it from time to time!

    All of these things are only visible to registered members, and only if you are logged in. If you have any difficulty, contact us and we will sort you out!
