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
