I continue my week in the footsteps of the old masters by travelling to train with other instructors. Checking out the British Museum and all the cool stuff we nicked from other cultures. I then visit Schola Gladatoria run by Matt Easton who are one of the most well known HEMA groups in Britain, if not the world.
Founded in 2001 and led by Matt Easton (nom de guerre “Captain Context”), Schola Gladatoria provides organized instruction in the serious study and practice of historical European swordplay. Schola seeks to be consistent with the methodology of the ancient European fencing schools by combining scholarship and research into the teachings of the historical masters (martial arts manuals), with the practical knowledge gained through solo and partnered drilling, and free play (sparring).

And of course there is Matt Easton’s channel, @scholagladiatoria
