For the last lesson of the year School of the Sword traditionally have a ‘bring a weapon’ party. This allows students who have passed their safety test to bring all their fun and non-traditional weapons to spar with.
It was a busy night with sword & buckler, rapier, dagger, small swords, axes, knives, long swords, sickles, poleaxes and even some shinai. Everyone had a good level of control and concentration to ensure we sparred safely and responsibly, even when we were pairing up odd weapon combinations.
We finished up with a fun team game of Assassins’ Creed and celebrated the fact that five more students passed their safety test.
