The longsword was a weapon popular in the the 15th and 16th centuries. It was normally used with two hands, but it was light and nimble enough that it could be used with one hand when necessary.
At our longsword classes in Glasgow, we teach an authentic historical method of sword fighting, according to books written by the 15th and 16th century German masters.
It is from these sources that we are able to reconstruct the system as a modern martial art today, where we practise with modern safety gear and training equipment. Safety of participants is a high priority!
Our Longsword – Intermediate class is for people who have been to a few fundamentals sessions, beginners sessions, or who generally know their way around the Vanguard Centre and the longsword.
Our Longsword – Fundamentals class is for beginners, newcomers, people with experience who are new to longsword, or for more experienced longsword fencers who just want to spend a bit more time on the basics.
