Our instructors are well versed in rapier, side sword, sword & buckler, smallsword, longsword, dusack, single stick, and saber sword play from a number of different time periods and cultures. We encourage any of our students that want to teach, to do so. We support them on their journey to become the next generation of TSD instructors.
Tattershall School of Defense in partnership with Los Angeles Historical Martial Arts Society (LAHMAS), offers workshops aimed at sharpening skills, fostering friendships, and expanding the knowledge of sword play in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
We create events that aim to sharpen existing skills, introduce new ideas, and provide forward growth for all participants. LAHMAS is designed to help fencers with personalized training goals. Rather than establishing our own school, we aim to supplement the training of fencers from various clubs by providing workshops, small-group training sessions, and interactions that mix communities from different fencing backgrounds.
