Godalming Training – 20th July 2022

2022-07-22T16:07:36+00:00July 20th, 2022|Godalming, Longsword, Rapier|

Tonight we had three groups: study group, longsword and tournament practice.

In the study group, we are free to practice whatever we fancy drawing from a selection of sources. Tonight it was Cavalcabo, Bartitsu and Domenico Angelos smallsword.

The longsword group worked on cuts following the Meyer square, putting a music stand to good use!

And John introduced members to the rules, practices and roles of a tournament.

Jane Austen Regency Week

2015-08-16T11:11:07+00:00June 22nd, 2015|Events|

School of the Sword was pleased to be be invited to take part in the Jane Austen Regency Week held in Alton, Hants yesterday.

Offering ‘have a go’ sessions, as well a chance to see and handle the weapons we use, members participated in displays of historical fencing. Starting with the smallsword of the Regency period, we proceeded to the rapier and sidesword of the Renaissance, as well as their companion arms.

It was a fun, relaxed day, in a beautiful historic town. We look forward to the next summer event where we will be at Godalming Staycation. See you there!
