It’s that time of year where many of our candidati who started back at the end of summer have reached the stage where they are ready to take their safety test.

The safety test is an in-house examination where the student must demonstrate control, efficacy and knowledge of the cuts and guards of bolognese swordplay.  Only upon passing this will our candidati rise to the rank of studente where they will be able to partake in our other streams of training leading to full sparring.

Jake and James are the latest of our Reading candidati to pass the test and rise to the rank of studente.  Congratulations to both of them for putting in such hard work and dedication
