    ... does anyone one know of anywhere in the North East that does sword lessons ??

    I've always fancied learning the art of swordmanship, I know there was somewhere in Loftus (near Saltburn) that gave lessons but it closed due to lack of interest - shame I only found out afterwards :oops:

    Hes gettin the cloak, the boots and now you want to learn swordsmanship? You ARE turning into obi-wan! :p but seriously, have you heard of an art called Iaido? Its the art of drawing and cutting with a japanse sword or something along those lines. I only know this because theres a club at the Uni. just a suggestion like :)

    i did fencing as a teenager for a bit its a very intense sport -
    plus it makes a diffrence from the kind of fencing i do now as a gardenier !

    trust jace to know about defence ? Him being a defence against the dark art's teacher !

    Well, it's a more original option than Judo.
