It was an evening of sartorial elegance at Reading on Monday night as, under the tutelage of Matt,  the rapier group began a block of training on the use of rapier & cloak.

Meanwhile the beginners continued their work towards the safety test and Pim took the Bolognese group.

Sunday Sparring went to Godalming this past weekend as students from both our Reading and Godalming salles met up to put in a bit of extra sparring time and try to put into practise techniques learnt at our training sessions.

There was a multitude of weapon combinations crammed into our 2.5 hour session including rapier & dagger, sidesword & buckler, single sidesword, single rapier,  rapier & cloak and even montante.
