Swordfighting training

Printer-friendly version

Fight like a musketeer!


We get together on Tuesday evenings to practice rapier, longsword, cloak and dagger, and a whole mix of other ways of using a sword. Have you ever wanted to be d'Artangan? We may be able to help...

Using the SCA's fencing rules (http://lochac.sca.org/rapier) and the various manuals written by early fencing masters, we're doing our best to learn the skills of a swordsman (or woman) from the 15th or 16th century. Our combat is all done with modern fencing masks (or equivalent) and blunted swords, and we have an authorisation process before you're allowed to enter tournaments.

We have some spare equipment available to get you started, so if you're interested, please get in touch. rapier@ildhafn.lochac.sca.org 

While the weather is good we will be meeting in Cornwall Park.

We take a break during the primary school holidays, so our first term is for 9 weeks.
