ABOUT THE WEAPONS

The Dueling Sword (or Italian Smallsword) is what the rapier evolved into in Italy. It held on to many of the aesthetics of the rapier but became lighter, shorter, and faster. Much like the French smallsword, the Italian Dueling Sword was built to thrust and was a civilian weapon used in duels.

The Dueling Saber is a curved weapon built for both cutting and thrusting. It was both a military weapon used by cavalry during the 19th Century as well as a civilian weapon used in private duels.

ABOUT THE CLASS

Class will be broken up into two halves. The first half will focus on the dueling sword and the second half on the saber.

Class will include a warmup, fencing games, and technical & tactical drills. This is a beginner-level class and no prior fencing experience is necessary!

This class/study group will take place at Mary Flynn Murphy Dance Studio on Sunday mornings from 11am-1pm.

Drop-ins from other HEMA schools and SCA groups are welcomed! Just get in touch with us ahead of time so we can expect you (bostonacademiedarmes@gmail.com) and to make sure we have any gear you may need.
