Four Hours of Knight Camp for Grown-ups!


“I’m your knight in shining armour. I’m here to save you from Linkin Park.” – Rufus Wainwright

Intro to the Knightly Arts

Saturday, March 24, 2012 3pm-7pm

Over the course of four hours you will learn the fundamentals of Armizare; a martial system first taught by Italian Knight Fiore dei Liberi in the 14th century. You will build confidence in unarmed combat, longsword, spear/quarterstaff, and sword and shield as you practice posture, movement, attack, defense, and fundamental strategy.

This is a hands on workshop ideal for adult beginners of all age levels and physical abilities. All the swordplay equipment required to participate is provided. At the end you will have the prerequisites required to continue your studies at Academie Duello in the Warrior Program or in our Longsword, Poleweapon, and Sword & Shield workshops.
