The Newtown branch of Stoccata offers two different weapons at a time, both concentrating on the British fencing systems and are led by Provost Paul Wagner.

Time is available in both classes for freeplay and individual revision, and first class is free.

Classes are on Saturdays between 15:00 and 17:15
St Stephens Anglican Church Hall
189 Church St, Newtown NSW 2042

What we do

This year we will be looking at military broadsword and two-handed swords.

What You Need To Bring

In a post-Covid world, we can no longer rely on shared equipment. Students will thus need to supply more of their own equipment.

If this is your first class, the only thing to bring is a pair of gloves (simple leather “riggers gloves” are fine). We can supply you with a practice weapon so you can participate.

All regular students will need to bring gloves, and as soon as possible, their own practice weapon, which will be explained at the class.
