Our Godalming salle saw yet another of our beginners pass their safety test on Wednesday night.

In order to pass the safety test students must demonstrate control, efficacy and knowledge of the cuts and guards of bolognese swordplay.

Congratulations to Thea who rises to the rank of Studente and will now be able to progress to taking part in many of our other training streams as well as full sparring.
