Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

We have just had confirmation that our locations are shut until further notice as expected. We have not heard any news from Chepstow regarding the sparring event, but it would be wise to assume it will go the same way. We will continue to produce YT videos from home as best we can. As soon as normal training can resume, you will be the first to know.

Learn to fight with medieval, renaissance and victorian weapons!

Our school has over a hundred members and two instructors with a variety of skills, knowledge and expertise in different weapon forms, combat and research. We teach armed and unarmed combat in the English, German and Italian traditions using longswords, sword & buckler, side-sword, rapier and military sabre. We train with both synthetic and steel weapons and suitable armour is always worn for sparring.
