2023-11-06T13:36:48+00:00November 1st, 2023|Dagger, Rapier, Sidesword, Swindon, Sword & Buckler|

The impending storm meant that we were a little light on the ground at Swindon tonight, so we had a “Try-A-Weapon” night, where students got to sample a combination of main hand and off-hand weapons including: smallsword, rapier, dagger and cloak. We all had a lot of fun and there is definite interest in progressing some of these weapons further.

It was the second day of our Coming of Age event, celebrating the 21st anniversary of the School of the Sword.  After a hearty breakfast, students jumped into a selection fo workshops taught by instructors from across School of the Sword’s four chapters.

Josh taught some Fabris Rapier & Dagger, Phil introduced students to dall’Agocchie sidesword, Fran ran a Sword& Dagger masterclass, Emilia tackled Longsword disarms, Adrian ran a workshop on introduction to single rapier, and Matt taught rapier and cloak.  We then gave out a bunch of awards before leaving the afternoon for people to pack up their tents and engage in a little sparring.

Thank you to everyone who came.  It seemed the event was a massive success and the perfect way to celebrate our 21st anniversary.  Here’s to the next 21!

Eight members attended FightCamp Skirmish at Ripley in Surrey, this weekend. It was very hot but I think we all had fun and learned new things. It is always good to meet up with fencers from other clubs, two guys even came from Sweden just for the event.
