Rule #1: Don’t Die

In all sword arts the first rule is to do everything in your power to attack in such a way as to remain safe.  Whether that is attacking assertively, or reactively, the first rule means that we are always approaching the fight with our own safety in mind.  In this class we will go over some basic concepts of keeping safe while being aggressive, as well as ways in which you can put the match in your own hands defensively – all while properly avoiding double hits, after blows, and proper right of way.

Required Equipment: A sword or weapon of some kind, and light protective equipment.
