Historical European Martial Arts: Unarmed Combatives
Self-defense concepts are not new. Treatises were written since antiquity about how to defend one’s self whether on the field of combat or in a city. This class will explore historical grappling and defense techniques as based on a fighting manual from 1409. This class will cover striking, blocks, joint locks, and how to effectively control the engagement.
No experience is necessary. Those with martial arts experience will see commonalities between historical sources and modern systems.
