We train with nylon swords (or wasters) and blunt steel swords.


Sabre (Military and Polish)

One-Handed Sword (and Buckler)


The minimum protection to take part in light sparring and many drills  is a good fencing mask and heavy duty gloves (such as padded lacrosse gloves or Red Dragon brand HEMA gloves). For heavier sparring add heavier gloves and appropriate protection for torso, knee and arm.
