Fall Practice kicks in during September at the Lakers Clubhouse through the Vernon City Recreation Program. Classes are on Mondays. See the details below!
Beginning Longsword Ages 16+
A longsword is a two handed, double edged weapon that was in common use during medieval times. Contrary to common belief these swords were not heavy. Instead they were light and agile blades. Size and strength are an advantage in fighting, but they can be trumped by speed, sensitivity and cleverness when fighting with longswords. This introduction will be based on medieval fighting manuals from Italy, Germany and England.
Swordfghters Regular Practice
Swordfighters is an ongoing practice group focusing on the western martial arts. If you have already taken Beginning Longsword or if you have previous martial arts experience and you want learn more about western martial arts in general then come join Swordfighters! Based upon medieval manuscripts and building on modern traditions of martial arts as well, we practice swordfighting, grappling, stick, staff, and daggers.
