I have been teaching historical swordsmanship for almost a decade and have developed this curriculum over the course of several years. I am a member in good standing of the HEMA Alliance, an educational non-profit service organization for the Historical European Martial Arts community; dedicated to freedom and variety in the pursuit of Historical European Martial Arts study, developing and publishing curricula and original research, forging bonds with educational institutions, and support of HEMA research and teaching. I strive to base all of my classes on a strong historical base utilizing primary sources and experimental archeology.
Students will be asked to practice footwork and striking drills on their own time between classes
This class can be done without a practice light saber, but a foam sword or other substitute is recommended.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This is an active class. Students will need a clear safe space to move around in, loose fitting clothing, and proper footwear.
