Autumn start

Greetings everyone!

As the summer is sneakily drawing to a close, the gleaming of swords will light up the autumn! From the 22 of August we will start up the autumn semester with indoor training at St. Petri.

The last two weeks of August we will have a sneak start of the semester, and following that beginner training for longsword, sword & buckler and jogo do pau. This fall we are also introducing a new day for indoor training. Sabre on Mondays, led by Gunilla Lindberg and Mats Wahlberg.

The weekly schedule will be as follows:

Monday: 19:00-21:00 Sabre
Tuesday: 18:30-21:00 Longsword Beginners + Advanced
Wednesday: 18:00-20:00 Jogo do Pau
19:30-21:00 Longsword intermediate
Thursday: 19:00-21:00 Swords & Buckler

All of our indoor training will be held in St. Petri’s gymnastics hall!

22/8-1/9 will be a sneak start of the fall semester. During these two weeks only current members are welcome. After this follows two weeks of beginner tryouts for longsword, sword & buckler and jogo do pau. 6/9+13/9 for longsword, 8/9+15/9 for sword & buckler och 7/9+14/9 for jogo do pau. If you have any friends or others that are interesting in trying out some of these weapon sets, bring them along!

Since the sabre training is new for the year, there will be no beginner tryouts. The first lesson will be held on September 5th.

During the autumn semester, Morgan Hedström and Gunilla Lindberg will hold a couple of workshops. Morgan’s will be about the basics of dagger and the partisan, and Gunilla’s will be about training with a female body type.

Gunillas’s workshop is taking place on September 4th.

Dates for dagger and partisan will be revealed in a later letter.
