About Palm Beach Sword school


Have you always wanted to learn how to fight with swords? At the Palm Beach Sword School we teach the Historical European Martial Arts. Working from several different historical sources, we can teach you how to handle a sword or several other weapons from European history.
While you are studying with the Palm Beach Sword School you will focus on the Scottish Broadsword as your primary weapon working with the same training manuals used to teach soldiers of the Scottish regiments in the 18th and 19th centuries. Once you are familiar with the regimental broadsword you will have the opportunity to branch into other weapon sets such as the sword and shield, bayonet, dagger, longsword, quarter staff, smallsword, cutlass, and sabre. As your proficiency develops and your skill with the sword improves, you will have the opportunity to spar with your fellow students and may choose to begin to compete in national or international tournaments.

What to Bring to your First class


  • All training weapons are provided; please do NOT bring your own weapon to class.
  • When you pay your registration you will receive a standard training uniform and fencing mask which you should bring to every class.
