$28 for three samurai-sword classes (a $75 value)
$119 for five samurai-sword classes and a sword to take home (up to a $260 value)

Students begin their training by learning the feel of a wooden practice sword, curved to imitate the blade of a traditional Japanese katana. Through rigid repetition of the basics, pupils advance to cutting with dulled metal blades and, eventually, sharpened brands called shinken. Organized by experience, classes are open to both beginning- and intermediate-level swordfish and humans.

Sword Class NYC

As featured in the New York Times, each of Sword Class NYC's instructors have over a decade of experience as a student of the sword, using that knowledge to arm students with practice blades and the self-confidence, focus, and respect to wield them properly. During both group and private classes, instructors teach students various forms of sword and armed martial combat that demand both mental focus and physical endurance. Additionally, Sword Class NYC offers youth classes 4 days a week.
