A note about skill levels:
Participants of all skill levels
are welcome and classes will designated either "beginning" or "advanced." To help you
decide which section is best for you, please consider the following guidelines:
If you . . .
Have no experience
Have performed fights in a show, but have not taken classes
Have taken a few classes
Have taken quite a few classes, but not tested with the SAFD
Have passed the SAFD Actor / Combatant skills test in 3 weapons and then stopped studying or allowed your certification to lapse
Have not taken a class in the past year
. . . you will probably be more comfortable taking classes at the Beginner level
If you . . .
Have studied consistently for at least two years
Have passed the SAFD Actor/Combatant skills test in more than three weapons (or equivalent)
Have continued your studies following testing
Have kept your skills and test status current
. . . you will probably be comfortable in Advanced level classes
These are only guidelines, to which there may be exceptions. But for
the safety and enjoyment of all participants, we ask that you be
realistic in your assessment of your skills. The Workshop reserves the
right to make final determination of a student's skill level.
