Re-Enactment Directory - Medieval re-enactment groups
Here at Clash of Steel, we strongly support the work of Re-enactors and Living
History enthusiasts bringing life to history, learning what it might have
been like to live as they did, and encouraging others to remember the past.
The Stork's Beak School of Historical Swordplay is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The School is based on teaching, practice and research going back some 12 years. We currently offer regular courses of instruction in Longsword, Dussack, Two-Handed sword and the Great Stick or Bastone. We use steel replicas of historical weapons and teach systems, principles and techniques drawn from texts on the subject of fencing written between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries.
When you join our school, you will get to study the European tradition of martial arts, and learn how to use a variety of swords. And, in the process you may pick up some history, philosophy, and fitness.
