View the Safety Waiver

Okay, time to get your feet wet! Come and join us at Swordfight Canada for a free one-hour introduction to the use of the Italian Longsword.

This free class is the first hour of the 4-week Longsword Foundations Course. If you like it, just stay on for the second hour and we’ll get you signed up for the rest of the month. If you decide to leave after the hour is done, I hope you’ve enjoyed your experience and will come back again.

Recommended age 15 or older. This class is appropriate for all skill levels and physical abilities.

There is no charge for the lesson or equipment rental; a donation jar will be set at the door for a contribution to costs like travel and the rental of the venue. Thank you in advance.

What to Bring to the Free Longsword Class

A steel longsword, fencing mask and throat protector (gorget) will be provided by Swordfight Canada at no charge.

  • Comfortable indoor shoes and clothes that you might use to do a regular workout. Long sleeves or a hoodie are better than bare arms.
  • Thin soft gloves are optional but always a good idea when training.
  • A water bottle or similar hydrating liquids.
  • If you are under the age of 19, a signed waiver on paper. View the safety waiver here.
Next 4-Week Longsword Foundation Course Begins January 10 and runs for four Tuesdays from 7:00–9:00 pm. Register here.
