|We offer a range of tailored options for schools (covering all age groups), educational facilities and museums in the South East of England.|
These can be bespoke workshops, for example, talks relating to the weapons we study or, their use in combat.
Talks and weaponry handling
|I will bring a bunch of medieval weaponry (The Table of Carnage) and will talk about:|
** How to become a Knight
** How these weapons were used
** Some of the available sources (Fight books)
** Self defence in the medieval period
There will also be some (safe) weapons handling and a Q and A session. Some of the items we have for handling are ones that normally can only be seen behind glass in a museum, so this is a very unique and fun experience.
Experience time: Flexible
Sword workshop for up to 15 people
|I can also offer a full-on sword workshop (which is almost like one of our standard basic classes). Specific content can be discussed.|
Experience time: The sword workshops tend to run for 90 mins including a Q and A session.
Notes: Attendees to this event need to be over the age of 13 due to the weight of the swords. No special clothing is required except for close-toed shoes. No protective gear is required as this is a no-contact event.
|I have recently run:|
** a Knight school for kids in Rochester Castle, Kent
** a Workshop for a group of home school kids in Sandwich, Kent
** WW2 Japanese sword combatives
** “How to be a Knight” workshops at a Primary school in Cliftonville, Kent
** Dagger workshop for medieval history academics at the University of Kent in Canterbury for their MEMsFest…
