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.

With a real steel training (not sharp) sword in hand, you’ll learn some basic posture, movement, attacking and defending. We’ll play some swordfighting games that make combat fun and safe.

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

  • 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.

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

Next 4-Week Longsword Foundation Course begins June 6 and runs four Tuesdays from 12:00–2:00 pm (register here), or 7:00–9:00 pm (register here).
