Swords Of Chivalry: Historical Sword Fighting - Youth Session
November 21, 2014
Location: 11468 Sorrento Valley Rd., Ste A1; San Diego, CA 92121
Description: One of the highlights of Chivalry Today's educational programs is the historically accurate presentation of medieval sword combat. Now you can learn these very skills from Scott Farrell (Chivalry Today Program Director) at San Diego's acclaimed Team Touche Fencing Center for an ongoing workshop of historical fencing and medieval sword combat called Swords of Chivalry. It is a fun and energetic introduction to the skills of historical European sword combat, or Western martial arts.
Adults and youth (10 and up) are welcome. This course is both a study of the historical techniques of knightly sword skills, and a practical study of the ideals of chivalry (respect, dignity and prowess) in a competitive (and very friendly) activity. Team Touche members will receive a discount on course fees; contact http://www.TeamTouche.com for details on costs for single sessions and full course fee, as well as directions to the facility.Events on November 23, 2014

In Other Words...“Valor is a gift. Those having it never know for sure if they have it till the test comes. And those having it in one test never know for sure if they will have it when the next test comes.”- Carl Sandburg

You and your troops may be sorely tempted to deny them humane treatment as a result. But you must resist that temptation. Treat them humanely even though they don’t deserve it.
