Congratulations to our new studenti who passed their safety test last night in Reading: Jim, Daniel and Emma. They are now able to participate in freeplay, and are full members of the School. We wish them every success in their careers with us.

The Safety Test is an integral part of our curriculum, where we test candidati (new recruits) for their technical knowledge and application, as well as their ability to practice fencing safely. Once passed a student then becomes a full member of the School.

Sunday sparring was in Hawley this week with a number of students turning up looking to get in some extra practise.

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.
