Gioco Largo with Longsword

The mechanics, tactics, and implications of the wide play of the longsword.

In this series you’ll explore gioco largo, the wide play, with the sword in two hands. You’ll begin with exploring accordant and discordant body mechanics and how to throw powerful and efficient blows, then you’ll proceed into the tactics of the wide play, how to avoid narrow play, and how to transition between the two.
