The Art of the Duel

Classical epees and foils for the Art of the Duel

Announcing the ART OF THE DUEL – a 4 session class starting on Tuesday 18 July, and running the subsequent Tuesdays at 7:00 pm for one hour each session. The focus is the duel with the Dueling Sword (the epee de terrain) as fought in the late 1800s through 1967. We will cover the appropriate ways to insult someone, and to reply to insults, the challenge, protocol for seconds, the choice and measurement of the ground, the technique and tactics of the duel, and the possible outcomes. The cost is $75 for the entire course. And if you are a Canadian citizen we guarantee that if you are unsuccessful in an epee duel we will refund the course fee. Why the special deal for Canadians? Because Canada just repealed the law prohibiting dueling … Please contact us at 804-798-7744 or by e-mail at if you are interested in attending, because the epees are waiting for you.
