Description of the project

Project division: The School of Knights

Project Brief:
This project is supported by the society Balticum Ordo Templi (Knights Templars of the Ordre Souverain et Militaire du Temple de Jerusalem) and Training and Research Centre of European practical fencing and self-defense "Combata Danza Macabra". The School of Young Knights is not just for fun, it is also for the teaching of traditional philosophy, the principles of life, and for modeling a disciplined lifestyle. That's why The School of Young Knights can become a very important stage in a child's life. Dancing and fencing have always been considered the most aristocratic exercises. They enable us to develop and strengthen the muscles that form your posture, speed of response and nobleness. Dancing and fencing affect children's outer beauty and grace. And that's not all, The School of Young Knights allows the child to develop not only physically, but also spiritually. In a playful way, a child learns the rules of etiquette, history, culture and the arts. Through our school, children learn how to become disciplined, hard-working and more creative.
