Welcome to the Salle!

This is the space for all sword-related thoughts arising from my ongoing journey as a HEMA practitioner and 15th century re-enactor in the UK.

I currently train on Mondays at the London Longsword Academy with David Rawlings. I regularly attend HEMA conferences and Wars of the Roses re-enactment events with my partner Robert Hook. In another life I learnt exhibition combat at Prima Spada School of Fence. My favourite weapon is rapier, but I also train with longsword, messer, and sword and buckler when I get the chance. On any given day I have as about as many opinions as I do bruises (i.e. lots).
