Fun with Swords! with Athena School of Arms
Athena School of Arms presents Fun with Swords!: A demonstration of the British military saber, medieval longsword, sword & shield, dagger, and other historical fighting styles. Join us to learn about these different types of swords, and see sparring matches between them. This demonstration is open to adults and kids of all ages; no registration required.
Following the demonstration, Athena School of Arms will hold a no-contact, hands-on lesson in one of these sword forms. This workshop is open to adults (18+) on a first come, first served basis – sign up before the demonstration to participate! All equipment provided, no experience necessary.
Athena School of Arms is a Boston-based modern school of historical fencing and martial arts. They have two primary programs: the longsword tradition of Johannes Lichtenauer, and the British and Scottish weapon traditions of the 18th century (broadsword, saber, and smallsword). In addition they have a rotating schedule of rapier, dagger, sword & buckler, grappling, and other arts. Training includes free play, drills, test cutting, and physical fitness; together, these elements help students to understand and recreate combat on the battlefield, the list, and in personal defense.
