Ever since Ian Bigelow was a kid, he’s been playing with swords and homemade sword-like objects. His love for sword-play led to fencing in his early teens. He began studying USFA sport fencing in 1997. In 1999, he started training in historical fencing at Marlboro College. Fencing brought Ian to a more in-depth study of the history, art, and science of swords and sword fighting throughout the world. From training with Thomas Leoni in Italian rapier and traditional Chinese sword with Sifu Scott Rodell, to German longsword with Christian Tobler, Ian has studied with many internationally renowned masters. Ian now teaches fencing at Marlboro College, the Compass School, Hilltop Montessori, the Putney School, and the Grammar School, as well as SoBo Studio.
