Historical European Martial Arts: Scottish Broadsword
Students will learn the practice of the classic Scottish military single-handed sword.
In recreating this form of fighting from an historical context, this class will cover
lessons from the manuals of Roworth, Taylor, and McBane. While focusing on the Scottish
broadsword, these techniques easily translate to the saber, cutlass, and spadroon.
Each class will teach students about proper footwork, guards, cuts, and exercise drills to become an effective single-handed sword practitioner. Each class will build upon the former, so drop-ins are more than welcome.
