Paul is the latest of our students to pass his safety test and join the ranks of our Studenti.

In order to pass the safety test students must demonstrate control, efficacy and knowledge of the cuts and guards of bolognese swordplay.

Paul will now be able to progress to taking part in many of our other training streams as well as full sparring.

Students gathered in Reading on Sunday for our regular weekly sparring session.  These Sunday sessions give our students time to practise techniques they’ve learnt at training as well as spar with students they don’t normal face.

We made good use of the couple of hours, leaving the venue suitably exhausted.
