Getting Started

So you've decided that you want to train with us, but you're not sure what to do next. Just follow this simple 3-step process and you'll be on your way in no time!

Step 1: book a free trial of the class you're most interested in. You can try any one of our programs at no cost, and it's the best way to get a feel for how we do things. Our coaches will make sure you get a great first experience, and will give you all the support you need to get the most out of your class.


Step 2: figure out what rates work the best for you. We offer unlimited classes for a fixed monthly rate ($120 + GST), an 8-class punch card that's perfect for students with unpredictable schedules ($200 + GST), or single class drop-ins on a pay-what-you-can sliding scale ($15/30/45 + GST).

New students can also save $20 on their first month of unlimited classes with the discount code NEWBIE. Just enter it when you register!

Step 3: jump into the Valkyrie Base program. This four-class introductory course runs at the same time as our regular weeknight and Saturday morning classes. You'll work closely with your coach to build the mechanical, technical, and theoretical foundation you need to be able to participate fully in our ongoing classes. You can start at any time, and take classes on your schedule. Just RSVP for the sessions you'd like to attend!

Once you've completed your intro, you'll be free to join all of our ongoing classes, including The Lab, Longsword, Historical Swordplay, POW!, and Stage Combat.


And that's it! Welcome to the Valkyrie WMAA community!
