The Vancouver International Swordplay Symposium is running from April 5th through 7th at the Richmond Oval.
Topics will include both armed and unarmed (or maybe not unarmed…) combat from many traditions, with instructors offering workshops in arts from Italy, Japan, Germany, the Philippines and beyond. There will also be lectures and open-floor time for attendees to practice what they’ve seen, as well as a Saturday night Gala hosted at Academie Duello in downtown Vancouver.

VISS is also offering a discount for students from local schools interested in attending all three days. For more information, please get in contact with the Maelstrom web manager, Dan.
