Rapier: The Easy Way

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.

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.
