Every member of Longpoint is part of the team, whether they have done one session or all of them. We all support each other's learning, dedication and enjoyment. We all have stories and some of those are shared on our student pages and our blog. For new and prospective students we have created a page here so you can view who the Lead Instructors and Executive officers are so you can easily put a face to a name and see our inimitable styles.
When I started it was contemporary, not historical.
Ringeck, swiftly followed by Danzig.
I have a soft spot for Mair and Fiore.
Dream of HEMA while designing global planning organisations.
Energy fuelled by the love of swords and deployed in the medium of collaborative learning.
I love seeing people get it. Sometimes it is that moment when the theoretical hits the hard reality of non-linear learning and it just works. Sometimes it is watching the students teaching each other. Most of the time it is both, having a club that works effectively where everyone wants the best for those around them and fostering an environment of fun, learning, and swords.
We now have the perfect home at Brockington, but finding it was a journey etched into my soul forever!
Starting a longsword club I feel obliged to say longsword! But, I have a soft spot for two-handed swords, daggers and halberds too.
Not enough. (not yet treble figures but we are getting there)
Whichever one is currently on order.
