Oxford Sparring – 2nd July 2023

2023-07-09T10:32:02+00:00July 2nd, 2023|Dagger, Oxford, Sidesword|

Sunday saw our Oxford students gather for a bit out outdoor freeplay.  These sessions are always helpful.  There’s only so much time during a lesson to learn a new technique and often the best way to practise it is to incorporate it into sparring.

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.

Sparring this weekend saw it take place on Saturday in Reading for a change.  There was a good turnout and a number of different weapon combinations, including seated dussack to allow those with minor injuries to still participate.
