Sunday Sparring – 29th January 2017

We had a great turnout in Reading for our Sunday Sparring session today.  There was a great mix of weapons being played with: everything from rapier & dagger through to spear and rotella.  There was also a nice level of feedback from students as well, analysing their fights and point out areas of possible improvement.

We celebrated a very hectic, sweaty session with a trip to the pub and a nice carvery.

Godalming Bring-A-Weapon Party – 21st December 2016

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.

Godalming Training – 12th August 2015

2015-08-16T11:07:30+00:00August 16th, 2015|Godalming|

A fun night where both beginners and seniors got to work together.  Tonight at Godalming everyone got to start on a couple of week’s worth of training focusing on using two swords.  Not only is dual-wielding fun and historically accurate, it’s also very difficult for novice and experienced sword fighters alike.
