Hi

I am looking at getting back into reenactment after falling out of it for a while. I am specifically looking for any groups based in guildford covering 900 to 1100 or possibly earlier. A google search throws up little in my area.

I am also looking to learn some English martial arts. I know there is englishmartialart.com who are local but the website seems no longer running.

Thank you for your help.

If you fancy playing with guns and blackpowder though do get in touch with me.

Ref martial arts : Matt Easton was trying to set something up in the area. Not sure if it happened or is still going. Try sending him a message.

There are some historical fencing classes (small sword I think?) starting at Broadwater School in Godalming this month. Somewhere I have a flyer. Will post details if I can find it.
