A change of pace
Chances are, you’re pretty used to exploring history through a history book or at a museum, but here at Baer Swords, we’re proposing something entirely different: sword fighting! Although warfare isn’t the only thing you should know about medieval history, it certainly is an important aspect.
Medieval sword fighting is a nice change of pace but still allows you to learn about history. Through our adult or children’s classes, you will learn the proper techniques that were actually taught and used in medieval times! What better way to explore history than to actually walk in the footsteps and live the lifestyle of a medieval knight?
With medieval sword fighting, not only are you exploring history, you’re helping to preserve it. Every person that steps through our doors is another person who can bring the joy of medieval sword fighting out to the world and teach people the historically accurate martial arts form.
The historicity isn’t limited to the technique, however. The weapons we use are also historically accurate. At Baer Swords, we have everything from two-handed weapons to rapiers, and spears to staffs.
A new perspective
Sword fighting will give you a new perspective on the history you already know. In other words, you’re not just reading about what kind of training a knight went through, you’re actually going through the process and learning for yourself. By the end of your training, you’ll have a newfound respect for the sport and the historical aspect as well.
