Two Handed Sword Course

Join us over 8 weeks as we explore the art of the two handed sword, the largest longsword around. Popular throughout 16th century Europe this weapon was most thoroughly documented by Achille Marozzo of the Bolognese school of fencing.

The style emphasizes flowing movement from guard to guard and exciting compound attacks combined with direct and elegant defences and was taught using set sequences to be practiced solo or with a partner.
