“My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!” said Mandy Patinkin (repeatedly) in his iconic role in The Princess Bride. Now you too can fight like Inigo. Have a great time learning basic sword fighting techniques for stage and screen — from safety skills, to cuts, thrusts, parries, and attacks. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to do a slow, modified sword fight. Physical requirements are the ability to move and stand throughout most of the 2-hour class sessions, and easily get from a seated to standing position.
