What are we about?
At Baulkfield (heh), we are a fun-oriented, inclusive, and friendly bunch of people who love swords just a bit too much. Only those who are intolerant are unwelcome in our club and our student body is extremely diverse in terms of age, gender and orientation.
We cater for anyone from experienced martial artists and those who might want to compete to those who just want to turn up, swing a sword, and make some friends. To begin training with our branch, you must be 18 years old.
Which Historical Sources do we focus on?
We are focused on the 16th Century system of Joachim Meyer and concentrate on his 3 core weapons of longsword, dusack, and rappier. We also do some limited work with the rondel dagger and polearms.
Which weapons do we train with?
- The sword is the knightly two handed weapon
- The dusack is a short sabre that heavily favours the cut.
- The rappier is a long single handed cut and thrust blade.

WE ARE BACK!!! Term 4 starts Thursday 28th October.
Strathfield – Tuesdays – 19:00-21:30
Strathfield Homebush Uniting Church.
Carrington Ave Strathfield (Close to Station)
Term 4 was due to start on the 14th October but at this stage will not be going ahead due to COVID 19.
Right now, it looks like we won’t restart until the end of the month at the earliest.
What’s on this Term?
At Baulkfield, we train all 3 weapons all the time. Want to train just one? That’s fine. Want to train a combo of all 3 across a lesson? Go for it. The classes are taught by principle in aid of this strategy.
- First part – 60-75 minutes of warmup and drilling with all weapons taught together by concept.
- Second part – 75-90 minutes is focused on games for those without equipment and free-fencing for those with their own equipment.
Training fees are $150 per school term per branch attended.
(Some students attend both branches as two lessons per week is much more than twice as effective as one lesson)
