It was a big night for our Oxford Chapter tonight.  Aside from their regular training streams, the chapter welcomed their latest Studente, James, after he passed his safety test. In order to pass the safety test students must demonstrate control, efficacy and knowledge of the cuts and guards of swordplay. James will now be able to progress to taking part in many of our other training streams as well as full sparring.  Congratulations

Sunday saw our Oxford students gather for a bit out outdoor freeplay. These sessions are always helpful. There’s only so much time during a lesson to learn a new technique and often the best way to practise it is to incorporate it into sparring.
