Master-at-Arms of the 1595 Club
Chris is a full-time teacher of martial arts. He comes from a background of boxing & sports/classical fencing, first studying the art of the sword under Master Jeff Elmes in 1987.
Wishing to discover a more martial approach to the sword he began his study of Saviolo in 1999 & in 2002 co-founded the 1595 Club with the aim of forming a school concentrating upon an examination and practice of Saviolo’s principles of swordplay and using them as a basis for a system of combat.
Since that time he has been invited to teach, demonstrate, lecture and fence throughout the UK, as well as Italy, Spain, Malta, France & Finland by historical fencing associations and martial arts schools. He has also worked with several museums including the Wallace Collection and the National Army Museum,
He teaches at both the London and Brighton salles.
