Great starts for Foundations of Combat and Beginner’s Rapier

Last Sunday saw the Barony’s Foundations of Combat Intake 1 class and Beginner’s Rapier class kick off for 2015.

It was wonderful to see both classes so well attended.  We hope all participants have a brilliant time building their skills.  Next Sunday sees an Ultimate Fighter Tournament prior to class so feel free to come along early and watch the Barony’s more experienced fighters and fencers take the tournament field!  Opens at 10.
