Be careful - our son loved it so much that he wanted to continue and after our lovely Groupon deal, we had to buy a week-long Knight camp! Great mentorship and training - professional and dedicated staff.

It's AMAZING! If you're interested in swordplay and specialized martial arts, look into it. now. NOW. Stop whatever it is you're doing (including reading this), even breathing, because once you take one look at their program, you'll no longer be able to breathe anyway. Just do it. You won't regret it. Shame on you for reading to the end of this before opening their site!

2 weeks in, the bartitsu class is quite fun, although pretty late in the day. Staff is respectful, efficient, the other students were helpful. Eat something a couple of hours earlier to avoid passing out. Bring a water bottle, there are no cups on the water fountain, and it's a cups-only type of fountain.

From Our Editors

It's a fairly common image from the Middle Ages and from fairy tales: an armoured knight on horseback, riding triumphantly into battle wielding a sword. Today, of course, such a sight would have shocked witnesses almost immediately—unless they're at Academie Duello. A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived centuries-old scenes similar to the one above. It teaches students ancient battle techniques, but does not re-enact epic duels or the well-documented silly-string wars that ensued when swords broke.

The 5,000-square-foot facility extracts skills and weapon information from authentic combat manuals and primary-source texts. Its instructors turn that knowledge into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs also help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers. To immerse themselves further into knighthood, students can check out Academie Duello's museum, which preserves an ever-growing collection of weapons of war, armour, and fight books.
