Description
Using the text of Codex 44.A.8, best known of the various "Danzig" manuscripts, we will look at the German school's idea of oppositions and their practical applications, regarding the master cuts. Since some of these interpretations are controversial, we will examine the controversies as well as what is actually said in the manual. This is a practical class, so a mask and a longsword (ideally without a complex hilt) are required. A handful of longswords will be available for students who do not own one.
