  1. My kids LOVE sword class. Thomas also offers an hour-long class in Shelburne Falls on Tuesdays after school. (It’s not currently listed on his website, so you’ll have to contact him directly for the details)

  2. We live in Greenfield and my son goes to Sword Class in Hadley twice a week. He loves it. In addition to fencing they play really creative roleplaying games. It’s definitely worth the drive.

  3. Anyone know of anything futther north (I’m in Greenfield)?
