This week at Crossing Fight School, we’ll be looking further into Paurenfeyndt’s Longsword, and getting a better feel for what he advocated in the way of fighting. The plays will become a bit more complex in some cases, but I hope to present them in a way which still allows for some good, old-fashioned ‘eyes open’ fencing.

Last week, things went pretty smoothly, despite some misgivings I had going into the class regarding some of the material. It all flowed nicely, however, and each initial motion set up the person executing the play for the moves that followed. Let’s hope that trend continues.

See you all on Sunday.
