Delta

Program Description & Details

Come on a journey through time, and learn about the martial history of knights and duellists.

Far from armoured brutes wildly hacking and smashing their enemies, the knights and duellists of the middle ages and renaissance were highly trained martial artists.  Skilled not only with swords, but also with daggers and spears, in and out of armour, on foot and on horseback.

A team of presenters from the Academie Duello will host your students, or travel to your school.  And over the course of an hour describe the martial arts of medieval and renaissance Italy with live demonstartions, a recreation of a medieval judicial duel, and a Q&A period at the end of the presentation.

En garde!

Immerse your students in the middle ages and renaissance, with a lesson in the arts of knightly combat.

Swordplay is a great special program to offer as part of your physical education classes as a single session or an ongoing series. We combine historical swordplay skills with modern physical conditioning techniques in a way that will excite your kids to move. We have had great results engaging students who usually have a hard time in phys.ed. and have found that even push-ups are exciting when swordplay is the reward.

The BC Provincial Coalition was established in 2013 with the overarching goal of showing young people in BC that they can enjoy time spent outdoors and learn more about the different uses of BC’s forests, including wood products, jobs, recreation and spiritual values. We provide field trip opportunities, as resources allow, to inform your students about topics relating to forestry, forests and the forest environment in BC. The Coalition can also offer you a number of resources including handouts, giveaways, videos and speakers to bring the forest to your classroom whether your class is in a rural or urban school.

For the BC Field Trips Fair, two field trips are available. One will be to the District of Mission Tree Farm and the other to the operations in the Fraser Valley of a forest company.

Come to Academie Duello's downtown studio and take a tour through our museuem, where students will spend an hour learning about the evolution of the sword from simple bronze age knives, to the knightly longsword, to the slender rapier, all the way to the sabres issued to cavalry regiments in the first world war.  There will also be a look at the way the fighting manual changed, with reproductions and first edition manuscripts, and a chance to try on armour too!
