Day 2 of our Broadsword workshops will be running next Sunday, 11th Feb in Sandyford Community Centre. 10am Start time.

For those newly learning the broadsword form, we’ll continue from where we left off on day 1. For those who are returning to the form, we’ll continue with corrections of the form, and applications…

For those who missed day 1, and have already completed the form, come along and we’ll, ‘sharpen the blade’…

If you’re not yet up to the Broadsword and feel you’re missing out on your workshop action, we have an open workshop planned for the 11 March, again in Sandyford Community Centre.

A good beginning to 2018.

Sandyford Community Centre, our new workshop location is working well. Big enough for us to be active and food options close by…

Our first workshop ran well with those new to the Broadsword form working alongside those seeking to deepen their understanding and extend into the practicalities of this weapon.

Also, it was great to see representation from MDA Cork and Kildare, well done, we all appreciate the distances travelled before the first moment of training begins.

So, 2018 has begun, day two of the Broadsword series will run on 11th Feb.

We’ll see you all there.
