Who is the Sword Club?
Two veteran Ann Arbor instructors with competitive experience going back to the 1970s lead a motley crew aged 6 to 60. They find common ground in a most uncommon quest for fun and personal growth. On any given Tuesday evening, any of
us might do modern foil, saber or epee or play at German Longsword based on 14th-century combat manuals, SCA-style
rapier, or c. 1575 period rapier.
