It was a busy night at our Reading Chapter tonight.  Matt looked at Marozzo, feints and fighting styles leading onto a friendly Bolognese tournament, whilst Simon and Josh continued their block on single rapier.  However, all attention was on the newly-improved peasant flails (first debuted at the Coming of Age event), which made a welcome return to sparring at the end.

Swindon had a guest tonight when one of Oxford’s students came to join us in our exploration of all things buckler.  Despite some very advanced work, there were good levels of concentration, with everyone showing marked improvement by the end of the session.  A good session all round.

Last night our Ssudents from Swindon were busy practising their best Matrix moves, as we played on the edge of measure with feints of the body.  Some excellent voiding by all, and it was great seeing some students able to use the drills to unlock massive level ups that they were able to take into sparring.
