Manchester study group

I thought I would set up a separate thread for this.

At the moment, the classes are arranged on a monthly basis, and will be fairly central in Manchester. Exact venue may change from month to month.

The class will run for 6 hours (more if we can swing it), usually on a Sunday.
We will cover Liechtenauers longsword.

We can supply enough kit for 12 people, however the room can accomodate more, so if you have your own fencing mask and shinai (kendo mask is acceptable), you can still book a place.
If places are taken, you may be put on a reserve list in case anyone drops out, and will be given preference for the next session.

Cost is £15 payable on the day.

You will need:
Sensible training clothes and shoes, water and snacks to keep you going.

Let me know what kit you intend to bring in advance. Steel swords may be used, but must be inspected by me and may be rejected. No sharp weapons will be allowed.

What happened to that Manchester Study group?

I went along a couple of times when I happened to be free in the winter of 2009/2010, then I stopped hearing about it. Did it just dry up? Is there anything else going on these days in the manchester / cheshire part of the world?

Dave.

I will be moving to manchester at some point soon, so I will be starting upi a proper SG chapter then. In the mean time, the student society is also open to non-students to attend

Thanks Paul, I guess I just lost touch. I'll keep looking at that FB page and see when a session comes along. By the end of SWASH it was obvious that I need a little more excercise!

It is a tad quiet. Basicaly the students are organising it as I just don't have time to do anything other than turn up and teach.
So it all depends on the society to book rooms, let people know what's happening etc

Ah. Organised by students. Say no more - I used to be one and I remember.

Never mind, will keep an eye on it and see if it gets going again.

I'd like to wave a tentative hand in the air in case anyone is monitoring interest for a Manchester based group. I'm in south Manchester (cheadle) :)

Hi guys,

I'm in the process of moving at the mo, so I'll be able to start thinking about a study group or regular class over the next few months.

The student uni group seems to have disappeared.

This might help with the butlering. For the rest you can find a lot of sources in the Online Treatises section of this site.
