At The Old Sword Club we practice fencing as used in life and death duels, self defence and on the bloody battlefield's of the past. Working from historical swordplay manuals we reconstruct swordplay primarily from late 19th century Britain and test our interpretations through friendly sparring.

The club boasts friendly and inclusive classes designed to teach beginners how to fence in a safe, fun and energetic way, followed by coached sparring to help fencers sharpen their skills. Teaching is built around open exchange of ideas and learning through focus on practical application. We also have a strong focus on making classes inclusive of diverse genders, sexualities, cultural backgrounds, ages and abilities, and the majority of our membership are queer.

Whether you’re a precocious pirate, dapper duellist, ardent adventurer or just after a fun activity to do with cool people join us for classes at The Old Sword Club, and go to https://theoldswordclub.com for more information.
