Sunday Sparring – 9th July 2017

Sunday sparring was in Godalming this week with a number of students turning out to take advantage of the good weather and the opportunity to get some sparring in.

These free sessions for students allow them to get in some valuable sparring time, practising the techniques they’ve learnt in our training sessions.  It also allows them to spar with people they don’t normally train with as well as try out some fun weapon combinations that are not part of our curriculum.

Meanwhile, the studenti had the option of two training streams:  Pim took the rapier & dagger group through some tournament prep, whilst Simon starts his block of lessons on the dagger.
