The experience will start with a brief warm-up with resistance bands, followed by an hour learning the basics of Hungarian horseback/combat archery. This will include learning special skills that you can't find anywhere else in Australia, and opportunities for fun challenges such as shooting at moving targets, or archery dueling (using safely padded arrows). Horses are not included in this experience, so you don't need any riding skills. After a short break, we'll then move on to a session of 14th century Italian Longsword, where you'll learn to fight like a real medieval Knight! This will consist of drills and footwork, along with controlled sparring with all safety equipment provided. Note that the swords used in the experience are specially made for the sport of HEMA, and are not sharp or dangerous. No prior experience or fitness is necessary, and there will be a half hour rap-up after the end of the sessions where people can discuss what they've learned and ask any questions they might have over a cup of tea. Guests can of course choose one or the other, and regular followup lessons are available for those who take an interest!
