Term 1, 2023 classes in Longford will be studying English quarterstaff with a goal of studying the bill polearm.
The historical basis for this class is George Silver’s Brief Instructions Upon my Paradoxes of Defence (1604), Joseph Swetnam’s Schoole of Defence (1617) and Zach Wylde’s English Master of Defence (1711).
Students will need to purchase their own quarterstaff, HEMA gloves and protective equipme to participate.
Classes will be led by Matthew Boyd.
Fencing masks are available for beginner’s to use, 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.
