This week at Crossing Fight School, we will finally conclude our series on use cases for the Hidden Hews with the Scheitelhau. Often used as a provicational cut or to strike at targets of opportunity, it is a hew that I believe to be underrated and under-used. The exercises planned for this week will hopefully give you all a new way of looking at and deploying this strike.

Along with this, we’ll also be looking at an introduction to grappling, particularly in Longsword (though the principles we’ll be examining are also common to other weapons). This will be in advance of the upcoming classes involving unarmed combat, dagger, and so forth.

See you all on Sunday.
