Comments: This is much more of a mental game between your partner than I had anticipated, but still expect to break a sweat. The free intro class is mostly kids, so I would recommend coming with a partner as an adult. Dueling it out with the kids would be a bit unfair due to the differences in reach. Once you move past the free intro class though, there are plenty of older folks to duel with. The class runs about an hour, with the first 20 minutes being an introduction to the sport and basic rules. En garde!
