Ironside Training Seminar

We are taking our show on the road!  Ironside Medieval Combat has the honor of teaching a fighting seminar at Warlord Combat Academy in Texas:


Warlord Combat Academy 1915 Peters Rd Irving TX

This seminar will cover the systematic approach to fighting helping both experienced and new fighters develop a better understanding of range power, and footwork. The team strategies will cover timing, precision, and situational awareness. Everyone will be able to take home drills to work with their teams and improve their odds of winning.

Note taking and video recordings will be a big part of this training.  Research has shown a stand alone seminar is extremely ineffective without application and on going support afterwards.  This seminar will cover a mountain of information.  The primary purpose is to expose participants to the information for them to work on and reference later.

Supplies needed:

Notebook and writing utensils –  there will be formal times for note taking and expectations participants come prepared.

Practice weapons you want to work with – This can be rattan sticks, steel swords, padded weapons.  We will be going over a variety of drills and work with partners to learn the motions.  The training will focus on Sword and shield, Polearm, and Longsword.  Fighters can focus and work on a single weapon style or rotate around the styles.  Our structure will be based on small groups and stations leaving a lot of choice and flexibility for the participant

Armor Optional – The seminar does not require armor to participate, however, fighters will find a lot of benefits to practicing these drills in full gear.  Fighters with complete kits can do these drills at full speed with full power.  Fighters without armor will be regulated to slow work only.
