SSA Method of Teaching

The SSA utilizes the concept of “Le Sale d'Arme”, specifically, the creation of a formal environment in which the discipline of the mind and body can be encouraged through the teaching of fencing.

The SSA follow the tradition of teaching the art and science of fencing according to the martial principles of the duel. We encourage our students to look at the study of fencing as a journey rather than a means to an end. This teaching has an emphasis on physical subtlety and mental stamina.

The SSA discourages thuggery by putting an emphasis on the development of technical skill, controlled engagement, balance, and defence. We achieve this result through the refinement of the mind through scholastic reasoning, and the body, through physical refinement. Egos are discouraged and must be kept out of the Salle.

Instructors Andrew and Lyell, through regular travel and academic study, further refine and improve their own development and bring this back to the school, whilst maintaining the continuity of learning so not to confuse.
