Sunday sparring was in Godalming last Sunday, and despite a lot of regulars away after taking part in tournaments in Bath and Finland, there was a still a good presence.

These free sessions for students  who have passed their safety test allow them to get in some valuable sparring time, practising the techniques they’ve learnt in our training sessions.  It 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.
