There is a heavy focus on the German Kunst des Fechtens tradition (KdF) in this class. Though we draw heavily from Lichtenauer training, we still explore the basic concepts covered in the mixed weapons classes and how they apply to the longsword weapon system
"The Art of Dueling" by Fabris is the base for our study of this Italian martial art. It can be used alone, with dagger, or even with a cloak. Footwork, body positions, and timing are focused on in this fighting system.
Sword & Buckler
Walpurgis Fechtbook is one of the earliest manuscripts currently available which is also known as MS I.33. In this class, students focus on two handed to defend their sword hand with the buckler as well as the basics of sieges and wards.
There are many approaches to singlesword work in HEMA, but we take a great deal of our training from the dussack technique laid out by Meyer. There is much attention paid to proper cutting structure, timing, and parrying.
