Medieval Sword Lessons at LionHeart Academy

Important Update

All in-person Medieval Sword classes are currently on hiatus until further notice. The Medieval Sword team is working on ways to keep students engaged and active with the option of distance learning using video, assignments and virtual lessons. For more information on Medieval Sword, please contact Scott Farrel at (619) 742-2315. 

Have you ever wondered what life was like for the knights of old? Scott Farrell of Chivalry Today presents a weekly workshop designed to give students an opportunity to discover, and eventually master, the surprisingly complex practice of medieval sword fighting. Lessons are drawn directly from historical source material – the fight-books or “manuals of defense” from the 14th and 15th centuries. This program lets you experience the skills of a real medieval knight training for battle, duel, or tournament.

The focus of Swords of Chivalry is not just on physical skill, but also on the values of self-discipline, respect, trust, sportsmanship, and honor – the values of the code of chivalry! Whether you want to learn to cross swords and spar with fellow students, or just get a low-impact workout through the range-of-motion physical techniques of the art of defense (it’s like yoga with a sword). Classes for adults and youth (10 years old minimum) are held weekly! Youth instruction begins at 4:30 pm, adult at 6:00.

Note: Due to class size restrictions, new students are required to begin classes on the first class of the month. Please call our office at 619-462-2027 to enroll in your first Medieval Sword class!
