Sunday Sparring – 2nd July 2017

Students from both Reading & Godalming met up in Hawley this past weekend to spar.  There were a number of weapon combinations in play:  single sidesword, sidesword & buckler, and rapier & dagger.

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.
