Weapons: Small children, foam swords
Participants will learn a beginners overview of early sword training focusing on a brief history on use of boffers and the waster sword discussing their role in historical sword fighting. Each participant will learn the historical importance of waster training and basic attack and defend drills. We will be playing several sword games such as, capture the flag, and defend the gate to have fun building teamwork, skill, and confidence. This workshop will be at minimum a half hour in duration and can be extended as time and participants allow. Types of games and activities to ensure safety will be changed and adjusted based on participant numbers, age, and skill level.
