My training & research follows in the tradition of the Scottish weapons master Archibald MacGregor, from Paisley, who researched both ancient and contemporary methods and taught throughout the West of Scotland in the late 18th century.

 Training & research includes:

  • Broadsword, Dirk & Targe 
  • Single-stick fighting
  • The half-lang long-Sword
  • The Claidheamh da limh
  • Medieval dagger 
  • Irish cudgel
  • Pugilism and traditional Wrestling

Training combines the study of historical sources, using accurate replica weapons, and effective, realistic practice.

The 'Dannsadh Bhiodaig' involves the exploration of  Scottish methods of martial arts from the combative moves of the traditional Highland Dirk Dance
