Program Description & Details

On a battlefield full of armoured men, it was difficult to distinguish between your allies and your adversaries. Knights would have their shields emblazoned with their own, personal Coat of Arms in order to recognize one another.

In our interactive heraldry program, students will learn about a time when brand recognition was the difference between life and death. Your students will learn the science of heraldry, create their own coats of arms, and explore both medieval and modern heraldry.

Make your next play one your actors and audience won’t soon forget! With Academie Duello you can bring a stage combat class or course to your school.

As the practices that actors use are always improving and changing in film, we use a curriculum that is the most practical and proven in actual performances. We teach how to use distance, timing and targets to make things look real, yet keep the actors and audience safe as we develop an eye and awareness for safety.

Swordplay has a lot to do with physics and mathematics. It relies upon a knowledge of force, angles, geometry and much more.

Program Description & Details

In our changing world, teaching ethics has become increasing important in creating responsible global citizens. The new curriculum asks students to make ethical judgements about the past and evaluate the limitations of drawing direct lessons from history.  One approach is to directly compare modern codes of ethics with historical codes from period sources. Studying prescribed codes of ethics from medieval chivalric manuscripts, such as the Book of Chivalry by Geffroi de Charny, and The Flower of Battle by Fiore dei Liberi, helps students examine their own codes of ethics and understand the pitfalls of dubious translations. But chivalry is essentially the ethics of swordfighting, and the best way to learn this is by swinging a sword. This exciting workshop combines hands on swordplay experience for kinesthetic learners with interpretation of historical manuscripts to reach multiple intelligences.
