Program Description

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.
