Holiday Fight Gathering: Choose your Weapon
In the spirit of the Holidays, all NYCSS current and past students will come together to mix, mingle and fight! Bring your friends and loved ones to the second half where we’ll enjoy some snacks and hang out.
At 2:30pm, the floor will be open to work on whatever you want. There will be a variety of items available to train in so you can Choose your Weapon to work with.
At 3:30pm we’ll have the Choose your Random Weapon Game! Two names will be drawn from a hat to determine who is fighting whom. Once a pair is determined, they will choose a weapon from a hat. Jared will choreograph a short fight for you to work up and perform. You may see Longsword vs. Gun, Smallsword vs. Unarmed, who knows!
This special gathering will be $25 for participating students in the first 2 hours.
From 4:30-6:30pm, your friends and loved ones can join us for free (please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 30th). You’ll have the opportunity to perform your Random Weapon fight if you’d like and the audience can vote on the best one. Then we will hang out, nibble on snacks and the floor will be open for students to train further if they like.

This workshop will begin with a presentation of historical European swords through the ages. A variety of swords will be brought in and participants will be able to handle them all. After the short history, we will train in the knightly art of longsword.
This weapon was used in Europe for hundreds of years to fight wars, duels and in personal combat. Jared will show the difference between historical usage and the romantic expressions commonly seen in film/tv in order to give the participants a better understanding of how to depict swordplay.
The simple cruciform hilted sword can be used with one or two hands. This workshop will focus on the fundamental aspects of Longsword combat to understand how the posture and positioning of the primary guards facilitate the offense (through cutting and thrusting) and defense (through countercuts and parries). This interactive workshop will have plenty of time for question and answer throughout the training time.
