This workshop will build on the basics of single sword with the addition of the ostentatious bravado and flamboyance of the swashbuckler. We will explore the history, style, and technique of the sword play made famous by film actor Errol Flynn. 

"I'm not a fencer. I'm a thespian. But I know how to make it look good."

- Errol Flynn, My Wicked Wicked Ways

Please wear close toed shoes and clothes that you can move in.  

(Basics of single sword not required to take this workshop but it is encouraged)
