Sword & Buckler, Basics (Sidesword Apprentice)

This month we will review the sidesword’s fundamental techniques, focusing on the basic mechanics of the sword & buckler combat. The buckler has two jobs: protect the body by closing lines and covering targets as it’s projected forward; and protect the sword hand when it comes forward to attack.

Acknowledgement of Safety and Risk

  1. Practice all exercises slowly and with control.
  2. Practice using training swords that are not sharp and are specifically made for practice.
  3. Use protective gear for all exercises. In many of our videos we are not wearing head, throat or body protection in order to make clear explanation more possible. You should always use protective gear when practicing these arts regardless of the exercise.
  4. Be aware that injuries in training are always possible. Ensure that you are practicing with care and caution at all times.
  5. DuelloTV is not responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of sword practice inspired from our videos.
