The School Of The Sword Makes Seattle Press

2017-09-17T23:24:30+00:00 September 19th, 2017|Press|

Head Instructor, Fran Terminiello, was recently in Seattle to teach a number of workshops at the Swordsquatch event.  Whilst there she was interviewed by local newspaper, The Stranger.

It’s good to see word of the school reaching around the world, and a fun article on someone’s first experiences of HEMA and its community.  Be sure to check it out HERE (although if there’s one correction:  Fran isn’t LIKE a matriarch, she IS the matriarch!)

The School Of The Sword Makes Local Newspaper

2017-08-23T22:44:06+00:00 August 23rd, 2017|Godalming, Press|

It seems our upcoming Beginners course in Godalming has been generating a lot of press interest due to Game of Thrones currently airing.  The Surrey Advertiser did a piece on us last week.

Our beginners courses fill out ridiculously quick and because we’re invested in making people competent swordfighters we don’t run them that often.  If you want to register your interest for our 2018 courses in either Reading or Godalming be sure to contact us.

School Of The Sword In Local Press

2017-08-15T10:40:10+00:00 August 15th, 2017|Godalming, Press|

With last week’s Game of Thrones featuring a swordfight between two female characters, The School of the Sword took the opportunity to put a little video together for our social media channels to promote our upcoming beginners classes taking place in Godalming from September.  The school has a very diverse membership and we are keen to encourage more women to take up historical swordfighting.

The video got the attention of local news, and has been featured as part of an article on the school on the GetSurrey website.  Be sure to check out the article.

If you are interested in our upcoming beginners classes in Godalming (which are rapidly filling up) then please contact us

The School of the Sword In The Press Again

2016-12-10T10:41:24+00:00 December 10th, 2016|Press|

Our exploits at the recent Reading Comic Con made it onto the GetReading website.  Reporting on the event we not only featured in their gallery (where we get called the Swordsman School for some reason – we can assure everyone we have a whole spectrum of genders in the school) but also in a little video as well.

Thanks to everyone who came and helped as well as the members of the public who came and watched us fight and asked us a load of great questions!

The i newspaper has written a very nice piece about School of the Sword, tying it into the upcoming  start of season 6 of Game of Thrones on television.  There are interviews with a number of our members and a nice focus on the fact that sword fighting is for young or old, male or female.

Our Reading group was recently in the news again with this great piece on the GetReading website talking about our training and new introductory courses.

Not only does the article feature a quote from instructor Fran but it also gives some nice background to HEMA by embedding the Back to the Source documentary that many of the school feature in.
