Longsword lessons are held on Friday evenings.
The longsword, held in two hands and used in unarmoured duels as much as in armoured warfare, is staple historical European martial arts. Our foundation for longsword is the Liechtenauer tradition of unarmoured combat (bloßvechten) dating from the 15th century, but our instructors develop their curriculums from a wide array of sources, from Lew to Meyer. The curriculum is developed as a collaboration by the instructors to gain the most from everyone’s unique insights and experience. One instructor will act as the head teacher on rotation for the duration of a lesson block, which is typically about 6 weeks focusing on a theme.
