One of the fun things about Sunday sparring is that it often gives students a chance to experience weapons they’ve not trained with before, or even weapons that we don’t train as a school.  So as well as the usual mix of sidesword, single sidesword and buckler, rapier, and rapier & dagger, Sunday saw us playing with sabres, longswords and smallswords.

It was a fun, energetic session that left us all covered in sweat but with smiles on our faces.
