German Fencing system sets up a framework on which all medieval combat techniques are based so while this course covers longsword techniques only it’ll also set up solid foundations for other weapons as well.

Please note: this basic fencing course is considered to be a minimum required standard for free fencing (sparring) and as such is obligatory for all Novice rank (lvl 1) members who want to move onto the Scholar rank!

Course will include the following:

– Basic footwork training,

– Basic stances and guards,

– Cuts and thrusts – body mechanics,

– Functional attack & defense skills,

– 5 Master Cuts (Meisterhäue)

– Halfswording  (Halbschwert)

– Grappling and Throwing techniques

Course will finish with an exam and everyone who passes will be awarded with the Cork Blademasters’ Scholar Certificate.

This will entitle to a discount on membership fees and full access to Cork Blademasters equipment as well as the rights to represent the School on official tournaments.
