About Academie Duello
A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived this art of the medieval period and has turned it into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers.
