About The Event
The Fighting Irish are not just Notre Dame Alumni! The Sword Conservatory (TSC) is teaming up with the Geek Fit Network and Mystic Farm & Distillery to present a workshop on fighting with shillelagh, an Irish walking stick. The shillelagh was the primary weapon used in Bataireacht -a form of traditional Irish stick fighting popular in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Learn basic attacks and defenses with this uniquely Irish weapon and then participate in safety bouts with other participants, and watch demonstrations of this style of fighting by TSC instructors as you enjoy a cocktail or whiskey tasting. Then lift your glasses in a toast of Erin go Bragh!
Must be at least 16 to participate and must sign a waiver of liability prior to the class.
