Description
We will cover how cuts are generated and delivered. Subjects including body movement, skeletal alignment and power generation will be covered. Material covered in the class will draw from historical fighting manuscripts. Participants must have at a minimum an SCA legal fencing mask, some sort of hand protection and a wooden or steel sword simulator. Longswords are preferred but single handed swords will work as well. Some loaners will be available. Additional safely equipment is encouraged dependent on your comfort level. Such additional equipment might include padded backed or hard leather backed gloves, gorget, and leather vambraces.
