Our Godalming students met up in Chilworth this weekend for the latest in the chapter’s regular sparring sessions. Sparring gives them a chance to exchange with students they might not have sparred with before, practise weapons that might not currently be in the training curriculum, as well as get some much needed time to incorporate new techniques and tactics into their swordplay.
