Introduction to Academie Duello
Welcome! Academie Duello is a school of Swordplay and Western Martial Arts devoted to teaching the traditional martial practices of Europe.
Our system includes diverse weapon arts, including use of:
- Sword and Shield
- Mounted Combat
- Walking Stick and Umbrella
We offer youth and adult programs focused on fitness, martial arts mastery, theatrical presentation, self-defence, and more. Take a look at our Programs Browser to find the best fit for you.
The martial art we teach is based on the content of authentic combat manuals produced during the Middle Ages, Renaissance and beyond, and covers the array of weapons and techniques used by the diverse fighting men and women of those periods, from duellists to knights. We even have a few original fighting manuals available to see in our Museum.
