Teaching Program (months are inclusive)
September: Medieval German Dagger
October & November: German Longsword
December onwards: TBC


Everyone is required to wear appropriate clothing for a sporting activity - this means that whatever you wear must not restrict mobility, shoes must be able to grip on wooden floors and and avoid heavy clothing (jeans, boots etc.). We also recommend a pair of light gloves to make handling swords more comfortable.

We do have club owned kit to hand out to people who do not have their own, so don't worry if you're completely new.

If you are already a practitioner please bring all the kit necessary to take part in the discipline detailed in the Teaching Program. If you do not have some kit feel free to Contact Us and we'll see if we can help.

We also set some time aside at the end of each lesson for sparring, if you wish to take part feel free to bring any other kit you want for sparring. Typically we spar with steel with the exception of Singlestick and Dussack.
