The Companion weapon in the secondary hand can take many forms: dagger, buckler, cloak, and a second sword, to name a few.

Cape: towel, small blanket. Order now, and I’ll send a custom cloak ASAP, however, I cannot guarantee you’ll get a cloak on time!
 

For buckler: pot lid, cardboard circle with a grip cut out in the middle (if you are practicing solo and no one is hitting your buckler)

Wednesdays 

7:00 - 8:00 pm EDT

The 15th century tradition of Master Liechtenauer teaches all of the medieval weapons, but the foundation is the longsword.  In this class we will explore plays from each of the five specialized strikes that he uses to cover different lines and break different guards.  From the opening strike, the plays flow deeply into his fight theory, each teaching a lesson on how a fight should be conducted.

1.  Zufechten - "To the Fight":

Enter and Exit safely using Measure and Time in Medieval Martial Arts

Countering a strike that comes right up center.

Countering a strike that comes up from below.

4.   Zwerchhau - "Strike Across":

Countering a strike that comes down onto the head.

5.  Schielhau - "Squinting Strike":

Countering a strike that comes horizontally to the head.

6.  Scheitelhau - "Parting Strike":

Countering a strike that goes past center.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: 

A sword that can be wielded with two hands OR an escrima stick or dowel, a golf umbrella, a broom handle is a little long but can also work.  If using a dowel, we recommend using some tape down the length to mark an "edge".

A ladder buddy - a stand that can hold a sword or stick to offer you opposition. It can be a stick clamped to a door jam, secured in a laundry basked or bungee corded to a ladder. Click here for a few pictures of how we made one.

$60 USD for the first 6 classes or $12/class

The rapier, the gentlemen’s sword of the late 1500’s to late 1600’s, will be taught in combination with a long parrying dagger.  Although some of the work will be historical in nature, in that we will explore the styles of Capo Ferro, Fabris, Giganti and others, the work will chiefly be Rapier & Dagger in stage combat.  Whether you are set to play Tybalt or Milady, skills with the Rapier & Dagger are key skills for any actor.   All that the actor needs to know about fighting with these weapons on stage will be examined.  

This class qualifies for SAFD certification hours and will culminate in the presentation of performed choreography.

A Rapier & Dagger or facsimiles. Click here for our recommendation on how to make one. You can use items such as a dowel or umbrella for your rapier and paint stick or DULL kitchen knife for your dagger.
