All you coaches out there might want to know that there are some rich Americans willing to pay $100/hr to "a private lesson with safe sabre swords".

That's what it said on page 6 of the online brochure at:


Prices? Listed at:

I thought in the land of the free it was unwise to call anything safe, because that left you open to litigation. "He said it was safe and I broke a finger nail, gimme a million Dollars!"

Are sabres safe then? 'Cause foils can fetch you a nasty whack.
