Single Sword is a theatrical style of sword play dating back to the golden age of Hollywood, featured in the classic swashbuckling movies of the 30’s and 40’s and contemporary classics like “The Princess Bride”. Influenced by modern sabre fencing, this is one of the most useful sword techniques to master. Particular attention is paid to the safeties required to perform fights as well as how to connect stage combat techniques to text, character and intention. The course concludes with a skills proficiency test. Students that pass receive a Society of American Fight Director’s certificate in Single Sword. Taught by Society of American Fight Directors Vice-President Chuck Coyl.
