Historical Swordsmanship Workshop in Cheshire
Date: 21st January
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: Village Hall, Eaton, near Congleton, Cheshire
Black Boar Swordsmanship School present a workshop for those interested in studying historical swordsmanship in the North West of England. This workshop will mainly focus on the of 'Smallsword' or 'Courtsword' of the late 17th Century. The workshop will however also touch on the wider context of historical swordsmanship of the 17th and 18th centuries and will be of interest to modern fencers, re-enactors, and anyone with an interest in historical swords and swordsmanship.
The class will be instructed by Ian Macintyre, Principle instructor of the Black Boar Swordsmanship School.
The workshop will run from 10 till 4, with a break for lunch. No previous experience is necessary, although it helps to be reasonably fit. Over 18s only please.
This is the first of what we hope will be regular workshops on Cheshire, with the aim is to start a regular historical fencing group in the area.
The cost for a full days instruction is £20.
Equipment will be available to borrow, although if you have your own mask, or fencing jacket, please bring it.
Out of respect to the traditions of historical swordsmanship, please wear black/ dark tracksuit trousers and a white T-shirt
