“I find a passion for the sword, in that it symbolizes honor, justice, and protection, which are all part of my life’s mission.” – Aaron Pynenberg
The goals of the program include:
-Learning the basics of longsword practice, how to begin and continue your training with limited practice partners or even none!
-Discover drills and exercises to help understand and practice historical sword combat.
-Allowing the art to be fun and informative!
-Improving your game if you are already studying the art.
This program will be tailored to the individual and will guide you on a path of discovery that will continue even after the training concludes.
“This class aims to suit everyone, I have extensive knowledge and training in how best to structure a class in combatives, and you will leave on Sunday feeling refreshed and motivated, not bogged down and beaten!”- Aaron Pynenberg
