Sword & Buckler
Swindon Training – 24th May 2023
Tonight saw the launch of our Swindon chapter as our beginners worked on the foundations of swordplay. After going through the origins of HEMA and the School of the Sword, along with safety briefing, we focused on just the sword this week. They learned the Pretzel and figure of eight, along with the associated cuts and guards. The group then proved to have excellent measure by aceing the Viennese Waltz.
