What to bring
New students need only bring non-scuffing shoes and generally sound athletic clothing. Jeans are a bad idea, think about shorts and track pants. All the rest is provided for initial exercises. Students will eventually be expected to purchase their own safety equipment if they wish to spar with intensity. People source gear from hema-specific companies, fencing, kendo, reenactment, and other sports. During the fall, winter and spring months, Students are reminded to not wear outdoor shoes into the training area.
St Catharines classes:
We also have a deal for people who bring their friends. If you bring someone in, and they decide to pay for three months of club dues, your next due is fifty dollars off. If you keep recruiting friends, the reductions continue.
Students will need to choose whether they wish to engage in Broadsword, Stickfighting, or Longsword classes. This allows them to focus on the lessons they want to take, instead of flipping between courses and disrupting their learning.
Niagara School of Arms also offers private or group lessons, which can be arranged according to your schedule, and at a time and place we agree to. We will also need to come to an agreement on the fee, which may need to be adjusted according to cover renting a facility (if that is required).
