New students of the Durham chapter of the SSS spend the first few weeks studying renaissance period rapier. This gives a good grounding in basic techniques which can then be used to study other weapons. We have two British Federation of Historical Swordplay certified instructors as well as occasional guest instructors. Among the weapons & western martial arts techniques practiced are:
- Highland Backsword
- Elizabethan Sidesword
- Various methods of stick fighting
We meet on Wednesday evenings 7.30 till 9.30 at Penshaw CA.
Classes include a warm up and practical training. You won’t be thrown in to the ‘deep end’ straight away. We’re all about learning and sharing knowledge.
Attendants to the classes are required to be over the age of 18.
