Bubba has a key message.


Key announcement for BB-Edinburgh.

We are swapping our class nights to Mondays with Thursdays our open study and free fencing nights.


A reminder that there are two weeks to go to our Sabre workshop by Martin Dougherty


After training Ian usually leads the rest of the chapter to the Bow Bar.


Tonight is our first Monday session. Plans already in place to do Smallsword and Indian Clubs.


Our new open sessions start this Monday. For student driven study.


Remember that fencing starts again tomorrow. Usual time and place.


It is confirmed we are BACK from next Thursday! Huzzah!


Sadly Omicron means we will be closed in January. Once it becomes more clear when we can return we will be back in touch.

Stay safe, wear a mask and get the booster.

Black Boar Edinburgh.


Very happy to announce we are returning to two sessions a week from the new year.

Our second Monday session will be at 7pm at the same venue, Heriots Sports Centre.

Rather than classes it will be an open session for approved students and free scholars to study and free fence.

All included in the same monthly fee.


Now that we are settled back in to fencing the hope is that Black Boar Edinburgh can move to two days a week. If we do so the options for the other session are Monday or Tuesday.

Please reply with what you think you would prefer.


Remember our new classes start tonight at 7pm


And we are back!


If you are coming fencing tonight be aware that due to the fire on George 4th Bridge there are bus diversions.


Remember we start again tomorrow. Please make sure to bring a covid mask as well as a fencing mask!


One week to go before we return. Time to check your jacket for "covid shrinkage"


We are delighted to announce Black Boar Edinburgh will return on 26th August.


The first steps to a return to fencing. Solo drill in the park. Much creaking and cracking of joints was in evidence. Same again next Thursday night if anybody wants to join us pm for details.


Full indoor training looks like it will return in June. However in the interim we are looking to do some non-sword drill in one or more outside venues through May. This will consist of footwork, body mechanics and probably some Indian clubs and other fun stuff.

If you are interested please reply so we can sort details.
