Sword Duellist ExperienceAcademie Duello
What would you do if you were challenged to defend your life and honour in a sword fight--that you couldn’t refuse? You’d have to get a crash course from your local fencing master, of course!
Join the expert sword instructors of Academie Duello for an adventure in the art of the duel. You’ll follow in the footsteps of the many 17th-century nobles that found themselves in this same predicament by learning the art of swordplay in a fun and fast-paced learning experience.
Over the Duellist session, you’ll get:
- to handle and explore dueling swords in our Arms & Armour museum.
- a lesson on the 6 tools you’ll need to survive a sword fight with the duelling rapier, including: movement & posture; attack & defence; strategy & trickery
- authentic swordplay knowledge in a 17th-century martial arts tradition.
- a chance to face a friend or one of our swordmasters in a duel of honour! (with blunt swords and protective gear of course!)
This experience ties together history and authentic swordplay into a fun adventure you can experience on your own, or with a group of friends or family.
