Description: In conjunction with our Weapons Series, Loreil Academy is proud to present this two-part series on Asian Weapons. The possibilities for weapons are as infinite as the choices of armor, yet rarely do we see an exotic variety of weapons used in combat. It is our hope that by offering classes such as this, we will help enlighten as to the broad spectrum of offensive and defensive weapons available.The first course offers an overview of weapons from China and of the bladed weapons of Japan. The class will include names, descriptions – and in some cases – history and uses. The Loreil Compendium of Asian Weapons will be provided to the students upon completion of the two-course Asian Weapons series.
