Mandel Public Library
During this free four-week program, you will be introduced to some of the most common weapons of the historical and classical fencing eras: rapier, smallsword, foil, épée (dueling sword), and sabre.
Each session will begin with a short lecture and demonstration of a particular weapon, followed by a brief Q&A session, after which you will be taught the basics of fencing footwork and posture for that week's weapon.
By the end of the last session, you will have gotten an overview of the use and cultural significance of each of these weapons.
You may attend as few or many sessions as you wish.
Admission is free but space may be limited so please arrive early. All ages are welcome.
