Lets text/chat about what we have found helpful in learning how to use a sword.
Swordsmanship or sword fighting refers to the skills and techniques used in combat and training with any type of sword.
Simply put, swordsmanship is the art of using a sword as an extension of your body. In other words, it is the art of using a sword as you would use your arms, legs, hands, or any other part of your body. When you are holding a sword, it should feel like it is an extension of your arm. If it doesn’t, then you aren’t holding it properly.
The art of sword training develops the following qualities in people:
- Increased Awareness
- Improved Focus
- Improved Reaction Time
- Improved Coordination
- Increased Stamina
Sword training is a great exercise for the body because it combines the intense cardio of running with the muscular endurance of weight lifting. In other words, sword training is a great all-around workout that will leave you lean and mean.
Sword training is a fantastic, cardiovascular workout that will build muscle, burn fat, and pump up your heart. It’s also a great way to tone your arms, chest, glutes, and abs.
Training & Qualifications
I bashed up my brother's nuckles for years trying to teach us how to sword fight just like in the movies we watched.
I'm sorry about that, and I miss my brother a lot now that he has moved away, but he ended up being the better swordsman of the two of us so it was worth all the blood sweat and tears.
We practiced "Broadsword for the Stage and Screen: The De Longis Method" http://www.delongis.com/PalpableHit/Broadsword.html
