The Deal

Blood & Iron Martial Arts

Blood & Iron Martial Arts' principal instructor Lee S. Smith and senior instructor Nicole Smith both 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 Single stick and German messer. They pack their weekly schedule full of two-hour classes, spending the first 90 minutes 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 30 minutes 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.
