Make Practice Second Nature

Keeping a new skill in the active portion of the brain allows you to return to serious study of that skill (for example in a weekly class) more ready for new information and with a much higher level of retention of previous material.

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.

Basic Courses

DuelloTV has a swordplay video instruction library unmatched anywhere in its breadth and depth. But the videos were long, hard to browse topic-by-topic, and weren’t very interactive. That’s changing.

We’ve been working extremely hard behind the scenes, and today we’re proud to begin our roll-out of online swordplay courses at two levels: Premium and Basic.

All of our new courses will offer bite-sized video topics from 1-3 minutes long. Track your progress as you make your way through the course, and pick up where you left off last time you visited the site. They work great on any device: phone, tablet or desktop.

Basic Courses

Basic courses contain high quality, individual step-by-step topic videos.

Every course on DTV (over 50 of them!) will have a simplified basic counterpart—just the video content in topic-by-topic segments. Track your progress as you watch them all. The basic courses will be built out much faster than the premium courses, so look for new courses to be completed and ready for you often!

Access all basic courses via Scholars Club or Masters Club subscription. Basic Course Packs will soon be available to allow a one-time purchase for lifetime access.

Of Course There’s FREE

We like free. That’s why we’ve always made our high quality Quick Start courses for Longsword and Rapier available to all members at no charge. If you haven’t yet tried them, jump in and see what they’re about. With video topics, quizzes and practice notes, we’re sure even experienced practitioners will get something out of them.

You can also read the training blog for free. Our blog currently hosts over 230 articles on swordplay, training, tournament, teaching, motivation—pretty much anything you can image connected with studying any martial art. Subscribe for full blog archive access.
