Summer Longsword Workshops are aimed primarily at people who would like to try out historical fencing/HEMA. Covering all principles of fencing this workshop will teach you basic movements, guards, attack/defence techniques and basic strategies that can be employed with any blade based weapons.

What we teach in this workshop (German Longsword) is a part of unarmored medieval combat system based on XV/XVI Century teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer (German School of Fencing).
