The Deal

  • $60 for a six-week Taste of the Renaissance or Taste of the Knightly Arts introductory course (a $125 value)

Introductory courses delve into the ancient Western fighting arts, meeting twice per week for six weeks. Instructors aim to familiarize students with weapons and swordplay theory from two vastly different chapters in European history. The Chicago Swordplay Guild requires that students attend one or both of these workshops before continuing their education in medieval or Renaissance swordsmanship.

A very enjoyable and interesting class. Instructors were knowledgeable and patient as they taught you the ins and outs of medieval swordfighting. You will gain an appreciation for the art and get a good workout as well.
