Testimonials from Youth & Parents

I appreciate the enthusiasm, encouragement, and direction.

– Alan, Youth Student


The instructors showed genuine joy in their job and caring for the children.

– Steve, Knight Camp Parent


I really like the variety of weapons taught and good conduct being so promoted in Knight Camp. I have learned a lot and I plan to keep doing so.

– Leo M, Youth Student


Our son simply loves being able to work with the weapons whilst learning the history. The classes and camps that our son has attended over the past year have helped him to grow and mature. He has focus and dedication as a result of his AD experience.

– Kristin MacDonald, Youth Program Parent


I liked the fact that I got to touch real weapons. I liked all the [instructors], especially Fraser. Knight Camp is the BEST camp I have ever been to. Seriously, swordplay is awesome!

– Kai, Knight Camp Student


Such a wonderful camp. The kids are treated with respect and learn so much! Ryan and Finn made new friends and their confidence is soaring! Thank you!

– Janet and Erik, Knight Camp Parents


The qualities of Knighthood [taught in class] are an excellent touch, as it becomes more than just about the fighting.

– Ben Coope, Knight Camp Parent


[We were] very impressed by the individual attention given to each child, so clearly demonstrated by the very specific feedback spoken to each participant in the graduation/certificate presentation.

– Esther & Doug, Knight Camp Parents


Knight Camp is one of the best camps my son has been to. I love how it is so much more than just learning to fight – really a focus on the whole person. I also love the honouring of each student at the end when they are elevated.

– Diane MacQueen, Knight Camp Parent


My son went to Knight Camp three years ago and was instantly hooked. He still goes to Knight Camp a couple of times a year, takes youth swordplay lessons and attends each and every Open Floor. He loves the things he is learning and the sense of community and camaraderie he gets from Duello. I love the way his confidence has grown as he sees his strength, dexterity and skill continually improve through commitment and hard work. The instructors obviously love what they do and it shows.

– Katherine Scrimshaw, Youth Program Parent


I found it very moving when the leaders spoke to the students and honoured their individual characters and virtues. I found the energy was positive, clear and focused in terms of structure, speaking and directing the presentation.
