Students gathered in Hawley on Sunday for the last sparring session before the Astolat tournament next week, which a lot of students will be participating 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.
