The Fitzroy College of Arms is based in Melbourne and is dedicated to the study of historic European martial arts. Specifically, we teach fighting as it was practiced in Elizabethan Britain. We use replicas of historical weapons and teach systems, principles and techniques drawn from the original texts of George Silver.
We study Silver’s systems for fighting with a single sword, a sword paired with dagger or buckler(a very small shield) and the quarterstaff.
Classes run every Monday evening at The Melbourne Salle (12/62-64 Oakover Rd in Preston) from 8pm-10pm.
Beginners are very welcome and the first class is free.
