If you or anyone you know is interested in learning medieval combat or in joining a medieval re-enactment group our pages are here.

http://www.facebook.com/groups/145706648853539/


Training is available on Sundays from 1 till 3 in Barlborough and on Wednesday nights from 8 till 9:30 in Bolsover.
All beginner's start with a wooden single hand arming sword then if the student is 18 or over will progress to a steel sword, sword and sheild, hand and a half sword, great sword and finally at knight level can learn to use pole weapons as well as axes and maces. Sessions cost just £5 and all are welcome!

Here's a short clip of Me and my training partner Luke Ireland doing some semi-competitive sparring with hand and a half swords to give you an idea of what to expect.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoG_fmaHLKg&feature=plcp

My eyes lit up then when I saw the name, considering I live in what used to be the capital of Mercia. But Bolsover is too far for me to get to otherwise I'd be houding the doorstep lol.

We are having to move our Sunday training group to new premises. Its bigger and has cooling fans :thumbup:

We still train on Wednesday at Bolsover but now we are moving to Barlborough that near sheffield (jct 30 M1) for our Sunday training.

Yours
