Sidesword Fundamentals and Guards

There are 17 different guard positions with the sidesword from the Bolognese tradition! In this course you’ll explore each of these different guards as we teach them in the Duello Armizare system, a method and form for remembering their positions and names, and the core actions you might conduct from each one.

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.
