Beginning in Term 3, classes in Longford will be studying British Sword and Buckler methods.
The historical basis for this class is George Silver’s Paradoxes of Defence (1599) and Brief Instructions upon my Paradoxes of Defence (1605), Donald McBane’s The Expert Swordsman’s Companion (1728)
Classes will be led by Matthew Boyd.
The intention of this class is to lay a foundation for Highland Sword and Targe and British Sword and Dagger.
Beginners equipment is available, though it is expected that students will purchase their own gear once committed to the class.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a pair of leather riggers gloves.
Ages 14 up, limited places available.
