LudoSport UK is a franchisee of LudoSport International, a light saber organisation that operates in 10 countries internationally. LudoSport hosts the World Championships for light saber, considered to be the largest competition of its kind.
LudoSport UK is one of our partner organisations within the British Fencing License Partner Programme (LPP), a family of training and delivery partners first established in 2016.
LudoSport UK operates their license in the City of Bristol and the Gloucestershire area. The license provides them with full training and support to deliver the ‘British Fencing Primary School Resource Pack’ (PSRP)*. The partnership also enables them to deliver the ‘British Fencing Core Coach’ programme to teachers in the area, introducing fencing to schools with an emphasis on fun, accessible experiences.
*About the British Fencing License Partner Programme and Primary School Resource Pack:
Official Training Partners are equipped with the knowledge, support and training to deliver the British Fencing Primary School Resource Pack, a researched and field-tested bank of 36 lesson plans, aligned with the British Fencing philosophy around a participant’s journey in the sport of fencing. The lessons also align with the British Fencing Achievement Awards of ‘MiniSwords’ (foam delivery aimed at 5-7-year-olds) and ‘Go/Fence’ (plastic delivery aimed at 8+).
Partners with access to the Primary School Resource Pack attend a rigorous 3-day training process that provides underpinning insight and knowledge into how to use games and swordplay fun to introduce the sport of fencing to primary school children. The training also explores how to use the resources effectively to develop the young participant’s resilience and self-efficacy.
The resource pack has been developed and road-tested for 2 academic years, and provides schools with a route to engage young people even if they don’t identify as ‘sporty’. We know fencing is a great tool to combat the notion of ‘sporty’ versus ‘non-sporty’ and we work with all our delivery partners to evidence this more widely.
