Free One Month Club Pass to the new DTV! – prelaunch

Summary Click: Starting Friday, Enrol for Free One Month Full Access Pass – more details below…

Hey everyone,

Devon here. I hope you’re enjoying your membership to Duello.TV! You’re one of over 1200 practitioners who has helped make this great online video project worthwhile for Greg and me.

Over the past 7 years we have expanded from a few class re-cap videos to a comprehensive collection of over 400 lessons that can take you from swordplay beginner to expert. We’ve received rave reviews from experts and novices alike and now have over 20 study groups and schools using our material to help develop their students.

This year we decided we really wanted to up the quality and usefulness of the subscriber side of Duello.TV even further. We have added dozens of new playlists on longsword, rapier, dagger, and sword & shield, and have created a new type of content: Courses.

Courses break learning down into easy to follow, progressive lessons. Now you can watch a 3-5 minute video, take the retention quiz, and follow the practice guide. It’s a much easier way for at-home practitioners, study groups, and schools to build their knowledge and ability, quickly.

Our Rapier Fundamentals and Longsword Fundamentals course series each have hours of lesson and practice content to help you up your game with these two excellent weapons. These courses:

  • Break down the essentials of healthy and powerful body mechanics.
  • Teach you how to create effective and responsive blade control.
  • Give the foundation for strategic control of any opponent.
  • Provide a theory and teaching structure that will help you expertly present these ideas to others.

After you complete the Fundamentals you can progress to our Apprentice level series that includes courses on Longsword Grappling, Rapier Strategy, and Unarmed.

Starting this Friday, for one week, we’re going to be offering a special deal to all of our members to check out the new Scholar’s Club and Master’s Club levels FREE for an entire month.

You’ll get access to:

  • 8 new courses on Longsword and Rapier
  • Our comprehensive library of over 400 lesson videos (more than 45 hours of teaching!)
  • Swordplay solo exercises across 4 disciplines
  • All of our training advice blog archives (Masters Club)

Free Month of Full Access + Longsword Strategy Lesson

Greetings everyone! Our free one month special on Duello.TV Scholars Club and Masters Club subscriptions is on until Friday, November 4th.

Don’t miss out on your chance to get full-access to our new three-part Longsword Fundamentals and Rapier Fundamentals courses plus over 400 video lessons (45+ hours) on beginner to expert topics across all weapon disciplines.

One of the areas that we’ve recently expanded is our topics on Longsword strategy. The lesson I’ve included below gives a systematic approach to how to attack an opponent based on where they are holding their sword and how to counter their forced response. Check it out:

Mastery takes an understanding of not just technique but the theory, principles, and practice behind them. Our goal is to give you the tools to be able to learn a technique, bring it into your own combative swordplay, and be able to pass it on to others in a way that makes sense.

For this month (November 2016) we have produced all new video lessons on longsword defence and effective counter-attacks, as well as advanced rapier strategy for defeating different kinds of opponents. We’re releasing a new video in this series on a weekly basis, and at the end of the month they’ll all be available in their Video Library playlist.

We hope you’ll check out everything we have to offer. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.
