The School of the Sword was invited to take part in a preliminary motion capture study by Portsmouth University animation department.

A small group was selected to attend on two days to help with the study. This involved wearing motion capture suits and lots of markers whilst trying not to knock them off with swords. It was great fun and those who attended put on a good display.

We will continue to be working closely with the department. The ultimate aim of the study is to capture and record the physical movements of arts such as dance, boxing and swordplay.
