Like swords? Want to learn how to fight like a 15th century master swordsman?

Join me (Adam) in Youngstown's first Longsword study group.

This session is called:

Introduction to Longsword Fencing Lvl 1 - (which end is the pointy end, and where are my feet?)

This is the first of 4 introductory session, no prior experience or specialized equipment is necessary. The activity level will require comfortable, athletic appropriate clothing and footwear, and a bottle of water is never a bad idea. Cost per session is $5.00 per attendee, and should be paid in cash at the start of the session.

*PLEASE NOTE* "Street Shoes" are not permitted in the gym due to road salt, water and other issues, please bring a change of shoes with you*

We'll be going over some of the basics of German longsword fencing here, with some introductory footwork and sword handling
