An elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Our rapier program teaches you a graceful art in the Italian tradition.

Our Italian Rapier program is rooted strongly in the lineage of the Venetian sword masters but references masters from across Italy. The term Rapier is a modern description of the renaissance era civilian sword carried by the elite of that time.

We also integrate Italian Side Sword into our training and sparring. The side sword was the military and law enforcement version of the rapier. Thicker and heavier than the Rapier, it cut more easily and was also effective from horseback.

Our program starts students in an intro program for several weeks before moving them into a multilevel martial arts class focused on single rapier. As students progress through martial testing and ranks, they will learn more side sword techniques and also gain access to offhand weapons such as the dagger, cape, and more.
