The Sanbec Swordsmen are a group based in South Western Cheshire who focus primarily on German Longsword and I.33 Sword & Buckler. We are enthusiastic and dedicated to reconstructing Medieval combat as per the fencing manuals of the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, as well as maintaining good levels of fitness and study!
We are a young group with varied backgrounds, ranging from complete combat neophytes to experienced sword-fighters and re-enactors. We encourage weekly attendance at our training hall and have a strict curriculum to ensure the effectiveness of our study, which we focus on for the first hour of every session. The second hour is a lot more lax and we allow our students to try out the techniques taught or play around with other weapons, such as Viking Sword & Shield. We also run a monthly combat competition to ensure that people can employ the techniques learned in a stressful, competitive environment with a non-compliant opponent.
