I’m happy to announce that as of 9th of January 2017 Cork Blademasters will launch a permanent Beginner’s Longsword Classes at our Mahon Venue every Monday from 7-9PM!
These classes will work as a container for all new students joining us throughout the year and will finish with our annual 10 weeks Longsword Course at the end of the year that will allow new recruits to advance into Scholar (lvl 2) rank in order to start participating in advanced classes, tournaments and other events.
Beginner classes will have lower intensity than the advanced ones as well as no sparring rule (though there might be some sparring elements involved). All equipment will be loaned so there’s no need to purchase anything at that stage but at rank 2 certain equipment will become necessary. Teaching wise, we’ll concentrate on the so called ‘common fencing’, basic set of techniques and moves that will prepare new recruits for the more advanced techniques that will be taught during the 10 Weeks German Longsword Course and then into the rank 2 where we’ll slowly introduce you to sparring environment.
So there it is, no more barriers – your destiny awaits! Learn Knightly Art of Combat and join the world of HEMA with Cork Blademasters!
I’ll see you all at our Open Day (Free Entry) on Monday the 9th of Jan 2017!
