Tomorrow Cork Blademasters will visit beautiful Waterford City for a one day session of German Longsword!
So if you’re in the area join us in Waterford Crystals Sports and Leisure Centre from 11 am till 5 pm and see for yourself how the real sword fighting feels like!
Workshops are aimed at beginners so everyone is welcome to try! Just bring a comfortable sports clothes, indoor sport shoes, towel and lots of water :)
We will cover all basic principles of edged based weapon fighting: footwork, using tempo and measure, basic guards and cuts as well as basic attack/defence strategies – we’ll even have some time at the end for free sparring!
This HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) workshop is based on teachings of Johannes Liechtenauer via Gloss of Sigmund Schining ain Ringeck, 1470 AD and Nuremberg Hausbuch (MS 3227a), 1389 AD.
