Free Introduction to Swordplay class
Novice students will be introduced to the basic techniques of the German Longsword. The Longsword is the central weapon in Liechtenauer’s art. It was a sword intended to be used with two hands. Our Longsword classes focus on blossfechten, or unarmoured combat, based on the 1452 von Danzig Fechtbuch (Fight Book or Manuscript). This free 30 minute class introduces the concepts taught in our Novice Course.
Classes on Dec 28 are 30 minutes long, and part of our open house.
Classes on January 5 and 8 are 90 minutes long and are the first class of the winter term.
