On Monday night,  our Reading Salle welcomed another new studenti.  Chris joined us as a beginner as part of our last intake back in April.  He completed our beginners’ course and then over the following weeks has progressed to demonstrate control, efficacy and knowledge of the cuts and guards of bolognese swordplay.

To advance to the rank of studente, beginners have to pass a safety test.  Chris passed his on Monday night and will now progress towards full sparring with other students across a number of weapon disciplines.

We’re currently rapidly filling up spaces for our next Reading intake starting in September, so if you’d like to follow Chris and our other Studenti, don’t delay as places are very limited.
