Academie Duello Demo

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ever wondered who would win in a fight between a rapier and longsword wielder? Can agility win out over armour? What's the difference between a medieval street fight, duel, and battlefield confrontation? Can a sword cut through armour? Join AcademieDuello in a special interactive session where you'll be able to pose your questions and Master at Arms Devon Boorman and his students will explore them. In the second hour, get a chance to pick up various swords, learn some swordplay basics, and answer some of the questions you have first-hand. This is a great session for writers seeking to deepen their understanding of European martial arts first hand, or for those who've always wanted to try wielding a sword.
