The Oxford Sword and Staff

The Oxford Sword and Staff is a Historical Martial Arts group based in Oxford.


Over the years, we have worked on our interpretation of "The Art of Combat" and are currently able to provide sessions on the Longsword, Rapier, Quarterstaff, Dussack and Dagger. As a club we are continuing to develop and will soon be providing sessions on Wrestling.

Previous martial arts experience is not necessary, so don't be nervous about turning up as a newbie. Many of us had no experience when we started and are still learning ourselves!

The main sessions take place every Tuesday in the Sports Hall at The Swan School, Oxford and are open to anyone (providing they are over 18 years of age).


Current prices are set at;

Members Pricing

Monthly £25 (payable by the end of the first week of the month)


On door price is £10 for both members (if not paying monthly) and non-members.

Once a person completes their introductory course they will be required to take membership if they wish to continue studying with the OSS. Membership runs annually and costs £25 / year.
