These 6 hour seminars are open to anyone with an interest in Western Martial Arts. Each seminar will offer hands on instruction covering the basic principles of a specific Western European weapon. Because, the concepts and techniques taught in these seminars are drawn from the larger body of Western Martial Arts, the content of each seminar is complementary to that of other seminars. Students will participate in drills and exercises designed to teach proper technique. No experience or equipment is necessary, but athletic clothing and footwear is recommended.
All participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the seminar. Space is limited so register early.
