Come learn how to hit people with swords! Please select only ONE event.
Monday, 2nd July 2018
St Peter's Eaton Square Church of England School
As part of the Esfinges Give a Girl a Sword campaign, London Historical Fencing Club are opening free spaces to people from genders that are underrepresented in HEMA. These tickets are made available to any women or people from gender minorities who are beginners to HEMA. Each class we run in July has several free tickets that are offered on a first come first serve basis. You will join in with our regular mixed gender class, in one of the three weapons that we teach: longsword, smallsword or rapier.
The classes will be suitable for anyone, whatever your fitness level or prior martial arts experience. All you need to bring with you is some loose clothing you can exercise in and a bottle of water.
Our goal with this event is to encourage more people to try out a martial art that we are passionate about. Our members are already very diverse, but we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to find out for themself if this martial art is for them.
Please note that while only 1 class will be free you are allowed to attend any subsequent classes at our regular price (£10 for the first 2 classes and £15 after that)
From the Esfinges campaign:
"Esfinges's ideology is focused on getting more women into HEMA. It is estimated that only twenty percent of HEMA practitioners are female, and an even smaller number compete at events. Many women find themselves the sole female member of their school. If every person in HEMA were to encourage just one woman to try a class we would make a huge improvement."
