The first session is free and after that you can either pay a weekly fee or a monthly fee, if you become a member (click here for more details).
At the start there isn't any need for equipment as anything required will be loaned, but later you will need to invest in your own equipment.
The training itself covers the teachings of Fiore dei Liberi (c 1410). The system covers:
The entire system is integrated (for example, with unarmed techniques working within the sword techniques).
- Unarmed v Dagger
- Dagger v Dagger
- Dagger v Sword
- Sword used one-handed
- Sword used two-handed
- Half Swording
- Pole Arms, Spears, etc.
Please contact us before you turn up to your first session - firstname.lastname@example.org
We have three types of members - Casual, Full and Overseas
Casual Members pay per training session and can join our emailing list. Anyone who attends training sessions and workshops can qualify as a Casual Member.
This is available to those who attend regular training (and in some circumstances those who attend workshops). An annual fee is payable and this gives the following benefits:
- BFHS Membership
- BFHS Personal Accident and Public Liability Insurance
- Access to "Exiles Members" forum areas
- Membership of our emailing list
- Membership of Exiles Study Groups
- Option to pay a "per session" or a discounted monthly training fee
- Ability to take and move through our level based training
- Workshop discounts and equipment
- Exiles email account, calendar, address book, etc.
Overseas members are people who have trained with us and, due to their level of training, have been invited to become Members of The Exiles. They are considered to be Full Members for all practical purposes, but do not have to pay a membership fee - as they cannot obtain the "UK benefits" such as insurance and BFHS membership.
Exiles Study Groups (ESGs) are sub groups within The Exiles available to all Full and Overseas Members. These are not "chapters" or independant groups, but extra-curriculum groups within The Exiles that work from the core study and training programme.
ESGs cover various areas including:
- Additional Training and Practice
- Historical Research
- Academic Reseach
- Discussion Areas
If you are a Full or Overseas Member and wish to join an ESG then please either contact the leader for that group (see the member section) or the Secretary
