“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with a sword.” 

The Spear

a bronze age pointy stick with purpose

Our weapons of choice at Black Dog Combat are the spear, an ancient weapon - perhaps the first -  and the sword. The spear is a dynamic and energetic weapon to use. It allows for great versatility in range and engagement as well as being accessible and cheap. The sword, - especially the bronze age variety, and the medieval arming sword, two-handed and long sword are our favourites for training with. We base our combat systems on bio-dynamics, medieval treatise and experience. We start with introductions to the movement and weapons and then progress through beginner techniques to more advanced classes. All our classes aim to be accessible, friendly and energetic.
