Isn’t it everyone’s dream to be a knight in shining armour? Well now you can bring that dream to life, with Blades of Glory Sword Fighting Lessons!
Sword Fighting Classes are available for everyone ages 10 and up, and our goal is to train you to the level that you could become an armoured combat sword fighter in one of our shows. Students will advance through using a polypropylene training sword, to a nylon sparring sword, and eventually to a blunted metal sword as they improve their skills and discipline.
Blades of Glory also offers a level system where you can earn belt flags after successful completion of each weapon / style, which you can hang on your armour during fights to showcase your skill.

Our experienced combat instructors are trained in a variety of weapon combinations, including swords, axes, polearms, and even some more exotic weapons. Once you’ve learned the basics of sword combat, you’ll be able to branch off and learn more advanced techniques and weapons to give you an edge in Blades of Glory tournaments. Will you become a jack-of-all-trades, or will you train to master a single weapon?
Medieval Armoured Combat Entertainment, or MACE, is the set of combat rules that Blades of Glory teaches and fights with. In essence, combatants fight in full armour until the time limit is up. You earn a point whenever you get a solid strike on your opponent’s head, torso, upper arm, or upper leg, and all thrusting and grappling moves are strictly prohibited (for safety)
Three judges will score the match, so they can see and count strikes from different angles.
