Silver Swords Armouries was first conceived during the final year of the Ontario Renaissance Festival in 2003. Since then it has been a major supplier and a source for instructional use of historically accurate, practical and functional arms for both the hobbyist as well as the discerning collector.
We offer instructional training in the proper and chivalric use of a number of different weapons and forms from the early Medieval to the late Renaissance time periods, focusing on the more historically accurate combat formats.
We offer basic to advanced sword/axe/spear, shield to long sword, rapier with or without offhanded weapons, archery, quarterstaff, axe and knife throwing, self defense and knife defense, pistol shooting and atll atll throwing. We have both indoor and outdoor facilities so classes run year round. The maximum class size for any activity is usually only 6 people so classes are small and offer lots of personal attention. More than 6 can sometimes be accommodated, please call us first to inquire.
We also offer a 3 hour introductory class for bladed weapons, where the potential students are introduced to a number of different weapons forms, any of which they may choose to start training in further. Call us for details and price quotes for both individual and group rates.
We are open 6 days a week. Monday to Saturday and 3 evenings a week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are closed on Sundays.
We have both indoor and outdoor facilities so lessons are available year round.
We are normally booked anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks in advance, especially for weekends, please contact us first at 905.606.0050 to inquire about up to date available days and times.

Archery is a universal sport, found throughout history and around the world in virtually all cultures over the last 50,000 years. Because it is so ancient and embedded in the popular consciousness, most people believe they automatically know how to do it. The truth is there are numerous steps to master. Archery can be as much a martial art as Karate, requiring equal parts of calm stillness and focus. Our First-Time class will set you on the path to becoming as good an archer as you wish to be.
Our advanced classes, are just that: ADVANCED. We will cover the basic fundamentals in more depth, working towards the successful grouping of arrows at farther distances.
