Fightcamp is a long running UK event organised by our friends over at Schola Gladiatoria.  It’s a fun weekend of camping, classes and camaraderie.

This year, two School of the Sword instructors were invited to teach. Adrian ran a rapier workshop on Alfieri and his classification of various fighters (as well as tactics on how to defeat all of them), while Fran held her workshop right after, focusing on how to look good with rapier.  Both workshops were well attended, with plenty of eager students.
