Description
This class is aimed at teachers of all marshal disciplines, although examples will primarily be pulled from rapier. We will discuss unconscious and conscious biases you might have about fighters of different sexes and genders, and how to recognize and remove the stereotypes from your teaching styles. We will also discuss drills and exercises that can help new students who are struggling with internalized gender stereotypes.
