The School

FSP has roots as a formal school going back to 1998, when it was part of the Stoccata School of Defence.  Andrew Brew, the head of FSP, was one of the two founders of Stoccata, and has been studying historical swordplay since the early eighties.  Give him a call on 0411 329 875, or just come along and see if historical fencing is for you (if you give us some warning we can be sure to have some equipment to loan you, and give you advice on what to bring).

FSP has been operating as a separate school since 2004, concentrating on two traditions of fencing - the German knightly school (13th-16th centuries, but especially the 15th) following the teachings of Master Johannes Liechtenauer, and the Polish sabre tradition (16th-18th centuries), as documented by MichaƂ Starzewski around 1830.

Classes are held on Monday evenings from 8:00 pm at the Ku-Ring-Gai Town Hall, 1186 Pacific Highway, Pymble.

Class dates for 2020 are:
3 February - 6 April
27 April - 29 June (no class Queen's Birthday weekend 08 June)
20 July - 21 September
12 October - 14 December

Note: Due to Government COVID-19 restrictions, classes are suspended until further notice.

If you are interested in attending, though, don't hesitate to get in touch, and we will look forward to meeting you when the pestilence has passed...
