Love classic action movies like Errol Flynn’s “Robin Hood” or “The Princess Bride?" Learn Single Sword, a theatrical style of sword play dating back to the golden age of Hollywood.

Single Sword is a theatrical style of sword play dating back to the golden age of Hollywood. Featured in the classic swashbuckling great movies of the 30’s and 40’s and modern classics like “The Princess Bride”. Influenced by modern sabre fencing, this is one of the most useful sword techniques to master. Particular attention will be paid to the safeties required to perform fights as well as how to connect stage combat techniques to text, character and intention. The course will conclude with a skills proficiency test. Students that pass will receive a Society of American Fight Director’s certificate in Single Sword.
