The intoductory lessons I took were fun, interesting and all the instructors and people I met there were friendly and helpful. Even though I was only there for the one class they gave me their time and attention and I actually learned something. I will consider taking classes with them in the future.

Blood & Iron Martial Arts

Blood & Iron Martial Arts' principal instructor Lee S. Smith–along with instructors Luis Preto, Nicole Smith, and Danny Miller–all love a good fight, whether with fist, knife, or sword. Mixing manuals penned by the masters of antiquity with a little modern combat science, the duo resurrects European styles of weapon fighting ranging from the Italian rapier and dagger to the German longsword to Portuguese stick-fighting techniques. They pack their weekly schedule full of two-hour classes, spending the first hour-and-a-half imparting the basics of balance, footwork, and body alignment needed to add a 3-foot metal extension to one's arm. They leave the last half hour open for sparring sessions for authorized students, since application is the best way to master a skill and the world’s last dragon retired to Florida in 1986.
