About This Activity

Description

The German tradition of long sword combat will be explored in this class. Throughout this semester-long class students will learn and practice combat based on the text of the 14th century German fight master Johannes Liechtenauer. Beginning with sword anatomy and basic footwork, students will be introduced to the four main guards and five master strikes of the Liechtenauer tradition. Expanding those concepts, this class will explore tactics and techniques that made this system so impressive. These tactics include: closing lines of attack; gaining and keeping the ?right of way?; manipulating the strong and weak pressure of the opponent?s blade; winding around the opponent?s blade; and special characteristics of each of the five master strikes.

No experience is necessary to attend this class, just a desire to learn and have fun. Each concept presented will be repeated and built upon, so drop-in students are welcome. Due to the nature of fighting system being taught, fencing masks will be required. The instructor recommends the HEMA basic fencing mask from Purpleheart Armoury (woodenswords.com).

Drop-in available for $20. If you decide to become part of the class, this amount will be deducted from your course enrollment fee.
