Reading Training – 7th November 2016

2016-11-17T19:22:47+00:00 November 17th, 2016|Reading, Sword & Buckler|

A number of our instructors were still recovering from just returning from Sweden so we ran just two streams on Monday.  It was still a very hectic and active session.  Adrian worked with the beginners who are rapidly approaching their safety test whilst Fran taught bolognese sword and buckler to the studente.

Sunday Sparring – 6th November 2016

2016-11-13T08:11:25+00:00 November 13th, 2016|Godalming, Reading, Sword & Buckler|

A number of our regulars might have been in Sweden competing in Swordfish but that didn;t stop our students meeting up last Sunday for our regular sunday sparring session.

These sessions not only give students time to apply and perfect skills learnt in our training sessions but also give them a chance to play with other weapon disciplines.

Thanks to Lizzie for the photos.

Sunday Sparring – 30th October 2016

2016-10-30T22:28:01+00:00 November 2nd, 2016|Dagger, Rapier, Reading|

It was the last sparring session before a number of our students fly out to Sweden to compete in the Swordfish tournament in Gothenburg next weekend.  So it was put to good use by a number of students who headed to Reading on Sunday looking to get in some last minute practise.  They also found time to get in some practise with other weapon disciplines as well.

Two More Pass Safety Test

2016-10-30T22:24:04+00:00 November 1st, 2016|Godalming, Sword & Buckler|

After many weeks of hard work learning the foundations of swordplay we’re seeing a number of students ready to take the safety test that they need to pass in order to progress onto sparring and other training streams.  The safety test shows they have understood the foundations of swordplay and are now ready to engage in a wider range of training as a Studente.

Congratulations to Leigh and Estelle who on Wednesday night became the latest members to pass their safety test and rise from the rank of Candidati to Studente.
