"We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training."

FALL 2021

Instructor: Samantha Egle, SAFD Certified Teacher

The system of steel slinging preferred by the swashbucklers. The style which supersedes other supercilious swords in panache and making a splash on stage and screen. The storytelling tool symmetrically suited to seriousness of drama and saturnalia of comedy.

Join us in this 10 week course as we engage with this versatile weapon, learning the foundations of safety in sword play, developing the skills of the confident swords-person, and discovering the storytelling potential of dramatic combat.

This course will culminate in an optional Skills Proficiency Test for recognition with the Society of American Fight Directors.

This class is open to individuals 17 years old and up. 

**Proof of full vaccination is required.**


I strive to make all my classes accessible to individuals regardless of fitness level or specific physical limitations. However, there are necessary physical requirements within the curriculum including the ability to see and hear well, readily and quickly move around the space (either on your feet or in an assisted device) and a functional range of motion and strength for extensive use of at least one arm. Accommodations can be made to work within most boundaries.  If you are deaf/hard of hearing, we won't be able to provide an interpreter but you're welcome to invite your own. If you have  you have questions regarding physical accessibility and your participation in the class, contact us!
