Members of our Oxford chapter met up today for some outdoor sparring. The days may be drawing in and getting colder but that didn;t stop their determination to get some extra practise and sparring in.
What with the pandemiic it’s been a long time since the school had a proper social. That all changed on Friday night when members of all chapters gathered in Reading for a night of food, drinks and sword related chat. It was good to catch up and meet members from other chapters we’d not encountered before. Thanks to Josh and Jubie for opening their house to us all.
Our Oxford students had a visitor from Oxford Sword and Staff to their regular outdoor weekly sparring session. They had great fun sparring with them across a number of different weapons.
School of the Sword saw a number of medals in the first round of the Wessex League, held in Didcot, Oxfordshire this past weekend.
Emilia Skirmunt head instructor at our Oxford chapter took silver in women’s saber, gold in women’s longsword, while Apollon Makropoulos, an instructor at our Godalming chapter, took bronze in Sword and Buckler.
Congratulations to both fencers in what, by all accounts, was an excellent event.
