Longsword Unorthodox Postures

Employing and countering the lesser used guards of the longsword.

In this class we explore the positions that live outside of the core quadrants. Starting first with the challenging but more common centreline guards and then branching into some that can be misleading to decode when you first see them.

Each class will focus on both how to employ the guard and how to defeat it. The overall goal is to understand how to approach any guard you’re unfamiliar with and decode its strengths and weaknesses as well as its potential strategies and counters.

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.
