    Medieval Sword Training

    LionHeart Academy
    Is chivalry dead? We don't think so. And neither do the folks at Lionheart Academy. So here's what's up, San Diego. This class allows you to go back in time to the Medieval Ages and learn the ways of Knighthood. But like, actually. These lessons are wrought from "Manuals of Defense" -- books that are straight out of the 14th and 15th centuries. It doesn't get much more time-travel than that. Your instructor, Scott Farrell of Chivalry Today will give you the opportunity to discover, and eventually master, the surprisingly complex practice of medieval sword fighting. So you can experience the skills of a real medieval knight training for battle, duel, or tournament. The focus of Swords of Chivalry won't just lie on physical skill, but also on the values of self-discipline, respect, trust, sportsmanship, and honor - the values of the code of chivalry! So you should sign up, whether you want to learn how to cross swords and spar with fellow students or if you're just looking to get a low-impact workout through range-of-motion physical techniques (think yoga with a sword). If we could attend this one, we would. But alas, the Vimbly HQ is all the way across the country.

    Women Group Foil Fencing

    LionHeart Academy
    Did you know that LionHeart Fencing Academy is the only fencing school in San Diego with a class dedicated to the instruction of women? Come on, San Diego! Get with the times. ;) (Just kidding, we love you SD!) Although it isn't imperative to have separate training, it is certainly helpful, as women's fencing phrases can be much longer than men's. Therefore, this class is dedicated specifically to exploring those differences -- especially good for those athletes aspiring to compete on the national level in gender-specific competitions. Beginners are more than welcome in this class and will be assisted by a coach until they can integrate into the main body of the class. So come as you are! Well, unless you're a male.
