Petition to redisplay Arms and Armour

A petition has been set up to get the V&A here in London to open up it's large collection of European Arms and armour out for public display.

Open Training 22nd July Fort Paull, Hull


 

There will be an open training session taking place at Fort Paull on Sunday 22nd July 

Fort Paull, Battery Road, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU12 8FP. Tel -
01482 896236

Arrive any time from 10:30 and open to all KDF + EHCG chapters and members.
Event finishes around 16:30, but I'd suggest we'd be best training for a
couple of hours.

We can have as much space as we need and the venue is registered for our
insurance purposes,so could controlled sparring will be allowed (usual
rules apply).

If you can let me know ASAP if you are wanting to attend and if you'd be
able to help transport some weapons, that would be great.

Please spread the word to other chapters and if I've missed anyone of the
list above.

Regards,

Dean Davidson - Chapter Master Leeds.

Welcome to 2012!


Farewell to 2011 and welcome to 2012.

The end of 2011 was busy, with a teaching visit to Mexico, the fourth time their teaching. Teaching included Longsword, sword and buckler, Rapier and rapier and dagger. It was good to see both old friends and new faces.

 

Plans are afoot to develop several events over the course of the year.

Keep checking in on the Guild sites for more information.

End of November update


 

Things have been quite on the main Guild front. Lots of regular teaching has kept me busy.

Off to Mexico for a mixed week long course, more foundational stuff in the morning and Teacher course in the afternoon.

The new year will bring news and activity.

Liverpool Chapter part of wider Martial Arts event.

 


 

Duncan McEvoy and members of the Liverpool Chapter attended a Martial Arts event in the area in July. The event was show casing wider martial arts and featured the usual range of Asian arts. The Guild was the only HEMA group in attendance.

The Liverpool Chapter put on demonstrations and ran sessions. Much interest was sparked, this could be a good step forward in building links to the wider more mainstream martial arts community in Liverpool as well as making sure that people are aware that if they are interested in learning a Martial Art, those of Europe are available and as viable an option as those from Asia.

We shall be posting a full report soon.
