The summer/autumn training schedule has been decided and we have some more exciting courses for club members. Daniel’s staff course is due to finish this weekend so if you are a staff aficionado then make sure you get in on the last class.
Stage Combat – 5th and 12th of March
Ben has kindly volunteered to teach stage combat for a couple of weeks. It should be great fun and may be useful for those of you doing re-enactment displays. Bring your favourite weapon and learn how to act out a glorious death, among other things. Please note that this course will be taught at the trial venue.
Longsword – 17th March (9 weeks)
Yes! Longsword is back once again. This time we have irrepressible John instructing. If you have your own steel or or synthetic longsword please bring it along as we may run short during classes. The first two classes of longsword will be taught at the trial venue and it will be a great test to see how the new place stacks up.
Beginner instruction will continue as usual but will start earlier at the trial venue. So come down at 10AM – we should be able to teach everyone at one time.
Since we have a few new rapiers at the club we are seriously considering teach Capoferro’s rapier later this year. We’ll send out more information on this later.
