HI/Hon Intermediate Swordsmanship

  • Nuuanu Valley Park

    2925 Pali Hwy, Honolulu, HI (map)

    21.335604 -157.838470

  • Intensive fighting class working on intermediate principles. Combatants will spend most of the session in sparring gear or armour, working through the intermediate plays and new drills as we devise them!

    While the class is intended for intermediates (compagni or scolari who have tested for yellow or blue), it is open to any SSG student who wants to add a second class session per week.

    Every fourth week we will hold the practice in a different park in an effort to attract students

    Sorry guys--it's pouring rain up here and has been all day. The park is definitely not suitable! See you all on Sunday, I hope!

    Would this lesson be suitable for a first time beginner? If so, what should I wear? Thanks!

      Wear comfortable clothes. Flat martial-arts type or china flat shoes if you have them. Leather-type gardening gloves are helpful. When you start to do active contact drills, an athletic cup and elements of basic armour become more important. We like to encourage medieval gear, but it's not a requirement.

      I think we have a single sparring sword left in stock, those are $55 if you want it. I'll bring it on Sunday.

    This Tuesday I will be testing James for his Compagno recognition! The exercise the rest do will depend on who attends. Remember, this is a short session, 1 - 1.5 hours max, so be on time! :-)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
