Spanish Fencing Course

Join us over 6 weeks as we explore Spanish fencing from the ground up. Learn how swords and geometry intersect in your opponents body 😉

This exciting style of swordsmanship was popular in Spain and Portugal for three hundred years and focuses on universal principles for the single sword.

The course runs for 6 consecutive Wednesday evening classes, starting on the 12th of September and concluding on the 17th of October. Classes will be held at the Melbourne Salle (12/62-64 Oakover Rd, Preston) and will start at 8:30 pm and finish at 9:45 pm. 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).

and here’s the Facebook event.
