Youth Swordplay

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Academie Duello’s vibrant youth program brings history to life through the martial arts of knights and musketeers! Children ages 8-14* can join us for our regularly scheduled youth classes and our seasonal Knight Camps. Youth 14+ are eligible to join our Adult Programs.

What to expect:

When you arrive for a class, you are greeted by the Academie Duello Front Desk team. Our front desk staff are able to answer all of your questions about the school, our programs, and our instructors.

All of Academie Duello’s youth classes involve a mix of academic learning and weapons based training. Classes start with a discussion on the months topic (armour, heraldry, etc.), followed by a fun group warm-up. Students then study unarmed material to encourage good posture, structure, and movement, before concluding the lesson with solo and pairs exercises and games. When head contact is a possibility, we wear protective masks, and when things speed up we swap metal swords for plastic ones.

After class the instructor is always available for questions, whether it’s about class content, other programs at Academie Duello, or general questions about the context of the arts we teach. If you have any questions on your way out, or if you want to sign up for more classes, you can also check in with the front desk.
