I offer training in swordplay drawn from the teachings of early European masters, but informed by insights gained from traditions and masters from around the world.
Students have the opportunity to train in person, remotely, or alone with the help of instructional videos. The Training page lists all options for undertaking study.
Training is based upon four key areas:
- The Physical
- Techniques of swordplay including movement, attack, and defence.
- The Mental
- Training the mind to retain material, maintain focus, and think strategically.
- The Ethical
- Conducting oneself well in society and using one’s training responsibly.
- The Philosophical
- Meditation and study of how martial practice can provide guidance for living.
