SG9: Schola Gladiatoria Manchester

Postby Paul B » 29 Mar 2013 18:49

Announcing a new Schola Gladiatoria chapter in Manchester!

I will be teaching Liechtenauer Longsword etc, plus Cunningham cane and eventually bolognese sidesword.

Classes will be Tuesdays 7-10pm and will consist of a 2 hour formal class with a 1 hour session for sparring and self-directed training. There will be no training on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Location:
Hawk Green Reading Room
28 Upper Hibbert Lane
Marple
SK6 7HX

Cost will be £10 per person per session.

Interested parties should contact me here or at paulanthonybennett1@hotmail.com.

Classes will be commenced as and when there are enough people to cover the hall costs.

A Facebook page will be set up shortly.

So we have been running for a month now and we already have a few regulars who are getting really into it.

The local bujinkan group sent a couple of guys for a peek last week, which was very cool.

I'm still focusing on longsword, and will be branching into dagger soon.

How is it going Paul? I keep meaning to pop in to be sociable. Preferably when you are onto Dagger, I never took to longsword.

Hi Dave,

We will be dabbling with sabre on and off and one of the chaps is interested in rapier.

Always space for a guest smallsword/thuggery session :-).

We are pretty skills oriented, so the weapon can be altered to suit what you are personally interested in.

Yes you did. The study group over in stretford may also be interested in a sabre lesson.

It is - details on the website here:

Best thing is to drop them an email directly, as Paul doesn't visit the forum here very often.

Joe has finally given in to my bullying and will be leading the class with rapier whenever he is available. We will also be looking at things other than longsword when I'm teaching, so dagger, sabre, walking stick are on the menu.
Simon may also be convinced to do a bit of smallsword.
