Over 240 of our favourite drills

In pandemic times our at-home practices are more important than ever. Over the past several months we have been hard at work creating for you a whole new series of solo drills for rapier and longsword as part of our new Daily Drill. I’m proud to let you know we have now created and published more than 240 unique drills for longsword and rapier (not to mention sidesword as well)!

Many of these drills I (Devon) shot in my own living room and backyard, so they’re truly made with home practice in mind. I’ve been stuck at home, too!

All DTV Subscribers can access every single one of these drills at any time as part of your regular service just by going to the Training page and choosing your weapon of choice.

If you’re not a subscriber, sign-up! You can also join the FREE daily drill email list and receive one of these drills direct to your inbox everyday for free!

Here are a few of my favourite solo drills for Rapier and Longsword you should check out right now.



You deserve to take some time for yourself each day, sword in hand. We hope these drills can make each of those moments fun, interesting, and challenging.

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.
