This week our smallsword class revised Plates VII, VIII & IX – thrusts under the opponent’s elbow to the low line.  They then worked on Pages 22-25 which looked at recoveries from tierce and carte thrusts into an upright, feet together posture, rather than a ‘natural’ guard.

Our Swindon students have been doing a lot of work looking at Sword & Cape this year, and sadly tonight was their last session on it.  We finished off looking at some cape throws from Fabris, and then spent some time gearing up to play with all the skills we’ve learned over the past weeks.
