WDS at Fight Camp 2016

WDS attended FightCamp XIII – 12th-14th August 2016, once again at The Grange, Balsall Common, outside Coventry.

With the usual packed programme of classes, Fight Camp was again one of the best HEMA events in the UK.

Classes included several schools of longsword, rapier, sidesword and more unusually broadsword and targe.

 

WDS at May Melee 2016

Run by Virtus Sword School, HEMA clubs from across the South-West and beyond gathered for a weekend of classes and sparring alongside general revelry.

Both of WDS instructors attended, but, plagued with injuries, could contribute little this time aside from good humour and moral support. We’re hoping for better fitness for next year.
