Learn to Fight!

Join us for our Five Week Virtual Beginner's Course

At the end of this five-week course, students will be qualified for general classes at the Austin Historical Weapons Guild when our in-person classes resume.  Students are encouraged to reach out to their instructor with questions or concerns at any time during the length of the class.  If a student should like more instruction along the way, they may purchase a package that includes a private lesson or add them à la carte.  This class is designed to appeal to the solo practitioner as well as those with pandemic training buddies.  Students will learn the basics of longsword, dagger, rapier, and single sword techniques that will prepare them for the exciting world of sword fighting!
