Rapier: The Easy Way


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Are you tired of flouncing fencers demanding overcomplicated forms, bent knees or lowered backs? Only the meek bend their knees in front of rapscallions and rouges, and that’s not you! Are you a noble, proud individual as ready to defend your honour at dawn as you are to protect your valuables at night? Then picking up a rapier is the right thing for you! Do you have just six weeks to leave your foes baffled at the simplicity of their defeat while maintaining your own mastery of this mysterious art? Well then this is the course for you!

With no bent knees, lowered backs or complicated stances we’ll teach you how to wield the rapier like the proud warrior you are. This 6-week course combines modern training methods, cutting edge (pun intended) scientific principles and historical sources to prepare you for greatness in the shortest time possible. Loaner kit is available.

Numbers are limited, so enrol today! The course is designed as an ongoing series of lessons, but each section can stand alone, so while highly recommended, attending all six sessions is not compulsory.

The course runs for 6 consecutive Wednesday evening classes, starting on the 11th of April and concluding on the 16th of May. Classes will be held at the Melbourne Salle (12/62-64 Oakover Rd, Preston) and will start at 8:15 pm and finish at 9:30 pm, with time for sparring afterwards. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle.

As always, the first class is free. Bookings are required – we need to ensure there’s equipment for everyone. If you’re already a monthly all-classes-included member, this course is included too!
Otherwise it’s $80 for students of the SHF and affiliated schools, or $145 for new students (this covers the cost of the class, as well as school membership and attendance at all SHF classes for the duration of the course).
