Activity Information

The basket-hilted broadsword and the military sabre were popular weapons in the gunpowder-era of warfare during the 18th and 19th centuries. Both types of sword are held in one hand and have a significant amount of metalwork protecting the fingers and wrist – very useful when that one hand is your only means of attack and defence!

If you like the idea of fighting a dramatic duel and looking good while doing so, then this is the class for you! The broadsword and sabre are weapons that are easy to begin with, and allow easy expansion into intricate systems in which your skill and athleticism combine with your individual approach to style.
