The Apprenticeship Program Online

Otherwise, you can study these arts through our online Apprenticeship Program, with members in the USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Russia and elsewhere. Members of the Apprenticeship Program have the opportunity to study any or all of the arts we teach, working with a combination of hands-on personal instruction via seminars and workshops, as well as the extensive written materials we have available, and our complete online curriculum. The exact mix of seminar time and distance learning will depend on the life circumstances of the individual student, but personal instruction will be emphasized to the greatest extent possible in every case. Participation in the program is free of charge, with the exception of any travel costs required for seminars. Help us to revive and promote the Art of the Highland Broadsword, and the martial heritage of the Scottish Gael!

  1. Again, email contact for enquiries does not work. Might want to look into it. A little disheartening for new people trying to get started.

  2. The contact email for “Southern California Broadsword Academy” is returned ‘undeliverable’…is there and active group in Southern California presently? Whom may I contact for info and how if available?
    Many thanks!

  3. Hello! My name is Isaac Ouellette! 😃 and I am a young man in San Antonio, Texas who is extremely interested in learning to fight with the broadsword. I have begun to read “The lessons of the Broadsword Master’s”, and am starting to practice positions one through five, and memorizing the parts of the sword. I have a yearning to learn from the Society, and maybe one day, as a huge supporter of martial arts, maybe become a Sponser myself to promote the art of Swordmanship! 🙏🕊 Thank you so much for your time! I await your response with eagerness! 😄
    With warm blessings – Isaac O.

    1. Thanks for your kind words, happy you like our work. If you like to join our Online Apprenticeship Program, please feel free to contact us.

    1. We have several members of our Online Program in Scotland, who will open training groups in the future once they are through the training progress with all certifications. We also have several good contacts and friends in Scotland too. So we are starting to be placed solid in Scotland 😉

      1. Do you happen to know the locations in Scotland of the members you’re referring to? Trying to figure out of there is anyone close

  4. I’m trying to reach the Southern California Broadsword Academy, and the email returns as Undeliverable. Is there a new email address?

    Also, can anyone recommend a good resource to purchase a Claidheamh da Laimh practice steel?
