Indecisive swordsmen often find themselves in a spot of bother when sitting on the fence. Put your best blade forward with today’s Groupon with Russell Swords.
Foiling opponents with a cutting riposte, Russell Swords are determined to spread their love of epees and sabres throughout South Wales. Teaching juniors from seven all the way up to veterans well into their autumn years, the coaches hold qualifications with both the British Academy and British Fencing Association.
Donning a lamé, gloves, mask and rapier, duelling juniors can take up arms, learning a new skill as they work on their poise, balance, and hand-eye coordination. Absorbing all the techniques and principles of this most noble of arts, sapling swordsmen and women can lunge, feint and parry to their heart’s content for five weekly 60-minute sessions. With up to five sessions running in various South Wales locations each week, miniature musketeers across the land can sate their desire for swordplay.
