Campers will be learning the basic skills of Hand-to-Hand combat, rolling, simple falls, choreography notation / analysis, stage combat history, and introduction to single sword techniques. All students will perform their class fight each day at the end of class. Students should wear comfortable clothing and bring a pad and pencil for notes.
