DDS Class Times 2016

Our website is currently undergoing an upgrade! Until then, here are the current classes and times as of March 2016:

NB At present we can only cater for over 18s


Study Groups 1930-2130
This is where we generate our HEMA! These aren't formal classes - don't expect to be taught, though we are often happy to fit in some drill and teaching by arrangement or for the hell of it. Usually we spend our time working out techniques from original sources and devising ways to teach them.

Freeplay-passed DDS members can just turn up, and can start their own study group subject to instructor approval. Other members are welcome to ask about joining in.

If you are a visitor or new member, please contact DDS before turning up on Monday. 

I.33 Sword and Buckler (On temporary hold.)
Please contact us to be notified of this class's resumption. 


This is our main night. We train, we fight, we go to the pub!

Meet in the downstairs hall for a shared warm up.

German Longsword 1930-2130
Authentic Medieval German longsword based on the Ringek/Von Danzig tradition. Beginners welcome!

Sidesword 1930-2130
Renaissance Sidesword (looks a bit like a rapier but more slashy). Beginners welcome!

WEDNESDAYS (no classes)

We no longer fence on a Wednesday.
