Description
This class is aimed at rapier fighters, though the information will be useful for heavy fighters as well. We will articulate subconscious gender stereotypes about fighting, make these stereotypes easier to notice and remove from your teaching, and discuss learning styles. In addition, this class will provide drills and teaching methods to utilize with different learning styles so that you can help students overcome hurdles in learning to fight, which often vary by gender and life experience.
