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.
