Where: London Longsword Academy
Remember Madonna's music video for James Bond's Die Another Day movie, which led to everyone going crazy over fencing? Well that's so 2002, because the only way to fence now is to swordfight medieval style. Dave Rawlings, who teaches at the London Longsword Academy, is so knowledgeable of the subject he was the sword expert on a Channel 4 documentary on Richard III, and has even advised the Wallace Collection on their exhibition about swords. We reckon there's no better maestro to learn from.
