Now that we’re in Level 2 we can meet outdoors for contact training. So we’re back at the farm and having a lot of fun reminding ourselves of all the stuff we love about training historical fencing. We’ve started with longswords – German longsword is the backbone of our club and a great place to re-start after a break. A couple of the guys have got new messers so there was an outbreak of impromptu messer play as well. Messer has been on our to-do list for a while but Covid totally scuppered our plans. Perhaps 2021 will be the year!
