Students gathered in Reading on Sunday for our latest Sunday sparring session.

These free sessions for students allow them to get in some valuable sparring time, practising the techniques they’ve learnt in our training sessions.  It also allows them to spar with people they don’t normally train with as well as try out some fun weapon combinations that are not part of our curriculum.

There were classes in Spadone, grappling, pugilism, case of swords, sword and cape, rapier, longsword and smallsword, plus lots of cake and laughter!
By the Sword had a very positive and friendly vibe, and is ideal for newcomer and HEMA veteran alike.

Godalming Bring-A-Weapon Party – 21st December 2016

2016-12-27T12:05:07+00:00December 27th, 2016|Dagger, Godalming, Rapier, Sword & Buckler|

Wednesday saw the last training session of the year and Godalming’s Bring-A-Weapon party.

Students got to spin a wheel to choose the weapons they would fight with, leading to some interesting and entirely one-sided fights.  It also gave students a chance to fight with weapons they may never have used before.  Good fun was had by all and it was the perfect way to finish what has been a very busy year for the school.

Reading Bring-A-Weapon Party – 19th December 2016

2016-12-23T00:15:25+00:00December 23rd, 2016|Dagger, Rapier, Reading, Sword & Buckler|

It was the last training session in Reading for the year on Monday, which could mean only one thing… our annual Bring-A-Weapon Party.

Students brought every weapon they could lay their hands on from small swords & montantes, through boken and bo staffs, to weird and wonderful from science fiction & fantasy.  Students who felt brave could pick weapons from the hat of doom which lead to weird and wonderful (and entirely one-sided) match ups.

We ended the evening with a melee where it wasn’t exactly clear who was on which side at any given time.

Reading Training – 12th December 2016

2016-12-19T11:18:27+00:00December 14th, 2016|Rapier, Reading, Sword & Buckler|

Monday saw our regular training session in Reading with multiple streams of training on offer to our students.

Matt continued his work with the rapier stream on rapier & cloak, Pim looked at deep targets with sword and buckler in the Bolognese stream, and Stewart worked with the students who recently passed their safety test.

Reading Training – 5th December 2016

2016-12-07T11:04:40+00:00December 7th, 2016|Rapier, Reading, Sword & Buckler|

Our rapier stream really got into the spirit of rapier & cloak on Monday night.  Aside from being pictures of Renaissance sartorial elegance they found time for Matt to guide them through a number of plays using the cloak as a companion weapon with very effective results.

Meanwhile, Pim took the Bolognese group through hitting deep targets and Stewart worked with the beginners working towards their safety test.
