Swamplot Sponsor: Sword to Sword

Swordfighting, Downtown Houston

Thanks go to today’s Sponsor of the Day: historical fencing school Sword to Sword.

Sword to Sword is the only school in the Houston metro area to offer historical European martial arts classes, covering the 13th through 18th centuries with German longsword, Italian rapier, dagger, saber, wrestling, quarterstaff, and other fighting traditions of the medieval and Renaissance periods. The school holds classes evenings and weekends, 5 days a week, in 2 locations: At 1212A Cedar Post Ln. near Blalock and I-10 and across I-45 from The Woodlands at 27326 Robinson Rd. Suite 112.

The school tries to foster a club-like atmosphere, with students helping each other to train hard and have fun. Loaner equipment is available for newcomers, and coaching is available at all levels — from novices who’ve never held a sword before all the way to competitors in international tournaments. Weekend and weeknight classes are available; they cost $40 per 2-hour session or $120 per month for unlimited attendance. Friday night sessions are typically followed by a BYOB social. More info is available at the Sword to Sword website.
