Historical Fencing, ages 7-14

Guest appearances by Maître d'Armes Cecil Longino have been a favorite part of many SHAK camps for more than a decade. Now we have special classes with this instructor devoted entirely to historical fencing, discovering both the thrill of action and the dignity of etiquette and posture that are encoded in this noble art.
