Our classes in Port Douglas teach a range of historical fencing styles. Students will initially train in the core weapon, English back Sword according to George Silver, and then can branch out to Silver’s sword and dagger, or large centre grip shield and sword according to Hans Talhoffer.

The instructor for these classes is Shaun Douglas, who began training in 2005 with Stoccata Hobart, under the tutelage of Provost Stephen Hand. He attained the rank of Free Scholar and has twice competed in the World Broadsword Championships making the finals both times.
