Quick question: what's your primary weapon? If you said longsword, rapier, sidesword... sorry, but in swordplay, your body is actually the most crucial part of your martial practice! It's what makes it possible to then train with or without other weapons. We oil our swords, but what about basic body maintenance? More effective training sessions are an immediate payoff, with injury prevention keeping us in the game.
This two-hour, premium workshop will teach you:
  • how to improve the quality of training sessions and reduce your risk of acute injury when training, whether with weapons or unarmed combat
  • common asymmetries and muscle imbalances for various types of swordplay as well as archery
  • basic body maintenance and "prehab" to help fend off overuse and imbalance injuries
  • what type of cooldown is actually necessary

Experience the childhood fantasy of being a knight as you take the first step in Academie Duello’s mounted combat program. This unique workshop brings together swordplay, riding, and horsemanship into an exciting session geared toward beginners.

During this intensive workshop you will:
* Get an introduction to fundamental riding techniques
* Learn how to safely handle, groom, saddle and bridle your horse
* Practice horseback sword fighting techniques

The workshop takes place at the Red Colt Equestrian Farm Co-op in Steveston, BC, just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver. In the first hour you will learn the fundamentals of horse handling and will learn how to groom and tack-up (saddle and bridle) your horse. In the remainder of the workshop you will get an introduction to basic riding, and build the fundamentals of swordplay from the ground, including movement, core attacks, and defenses.

Beginning riders are provided one-on-one attention during the riding portion. Those with previous experience will have the opportunity to ride independently and practice more advanced drills.

Deft, Cruel, and Deadly - Use of the Halberd and Poleaxe

Date Saturday, December 13, 2014

Time3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Price C$60.00

LocationAcademie Duello Map and Directions

Available Spaces 12

The halberd, a combination of spear, hook, and axe, is one of the most deadly weapons of the battlefield.

The axe is used to cleave and split a knight at the weak points in his armour, or batter his most defended places, crushing the man inside. The hook us a cruel tool for hauling men from horseback, pulling down shields, hooking and tearing weapons from the hands and limbs from the body. The spear drives through weak spaces in the under arms, beneath the chin, and under the aventail attacking deftly and assuredly at distance. Get too close and the haft of the weapon is an effective tool for throwing and binding the opponent and forcing them to submit, where ransom may be a more economically advantageous ending to a bout than death.

Students in this workshop will learn:
- Use of the poleaxe to strike, crush, thrust, and grapple.
- How to deal with close plays and counter the weapon's weaknesses.
- Striking with every surface of the weapon.
- Use of the poleweapon against an armoured, unarmed, and mounted man.
A strenuous but fun workshop that will entertain and challenge martial practitioners of all experience levels and backgrounds.

Fight Directors Canada requires three specific weapon systems at the Basic Actor-Combatant level: Sword, Quarterstaff and Unarmed. The 20 hours of lessons per weapon covers how to wield the weapon with accuracy and effective fighting style, in drills, choreography and flourishes. Equally important are the safety concerns with each weapon, and how to create the illusion of violence with each strike and move. At the end of the course, the student will perform three fight scenes (complete with dialogue and acting besides an impressive fight), one for each weapon, evaluated by an FDC Fight Master.

Classes run Monday through Friday for two weeks, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

LocationAcademie Duello Map and Directions

Available Spaces 12

This workshop in our core-series is for students to develop their practice. The 4-hour workshop will be split into 2 parts:

  • body mechanics
  • control

The first 2 hours will be devoted to developing good body mechanics, the foundation of effective swordplay. Following Capoferro’s description of the use of the body, the workshop will help you develop strength and ease in your basic guard agility and quickness into your disengage and lunge.

In the second half of the workshop we will improve the mechanical techniques of controlling the opponent’s sword to create opportunities for striking. Students will develop the skills to hold a controlled line, yield to a strongly parried line and to maintain control against a disengage.

Understanding of guard positions, lunging  and control is required to register. Members who have completed the Taste of the Renaissance course in 2014, who have been practicing with the rapier or who have instructor approval (C. Fernandes) may attend.

This workshop will work fundamental mechanical skills thoroughly. Participants should expect a good work-out!
