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.
Note: All necessary equipment rentals will be provided. You must be at least 15 years old to participate.
