WOTL’s SWORD and SHIELD Training is a 7-week program open to both male & female participants, ages 17 and up, and are lead by WOTL Sword and Shield Instructor Andy Keyworth.
Training will focus on the use of the sword-and-shield but will also introduce the use of other weapons as time progresses.
WOTL’s Sword and Shield Classes attempts to use existing research into the skilled use of these weapons to boost fitness, increase functional strength, foster alertness, and recreate a sense of the “warrior spirit” by practicing techniques of attack and defense and experiment with encounter sets, all in a safe environment.

The overall goal of sword and shield training is for participants to reconnect with the best aspects of the warrior spirit: a sense of self-sufficiency, personal accomplishment and individual responsibility. By integrating multiple joint and muscle exercises, we are also able to teach all our muscles to work together, preparing them for real-life activities in real-life positions, while also getting a killer workout.

Classes run on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9pm.

As our group is seeing the growth and strength of its returning students, we are evolving classes to now include «free sparring» for those participants (with their own appropriate safety equipment) wanting to challenge their on-going development of ability and attributes with the sword and shield.
For new students and those without safety equipment, we will conduct
«technique sparring» in which an instructor
will move freely but provide students with deliberate openings to allow them
to practice the techniques they just learned.

Space is limited to 12 participants per sessions.
