Program Description

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.


Big Ideas
  • Increasingly complex societies required new systems of laws and government.
  • Religious and cultural practices that emerged during this period have endured and continue to influence people.
  • Contacts and conflicts between peoples stimulated significant cultural, social, political change.
