    • Practical considerations of fighting with sharp and heavy weapons.
  • We will work on material common to multiple historical fighting styles,
  • preparing you for effective study of the weapon of your choosing, whether longsword, single-handed sword, rapier, or dueling saber.
  • Advanced Classes will be weapon specific and will require TFC Membership
