Introduction to Italian Longsword
Our Medieval series of courses begins with Introduction to Italian Longsword.
In just a handful of core practice forms, you'll learn the basic moves needed to fence like an Italian Knight. More than just videos, we include training guides with terminology definitions, lesson plans, and historical context. There's even an option for live online classes (Drills for Skills).
Also included in our Medieval series of courses are a selection of special lectures. We're always adding additional materials of particular interest to Medieval scholars and fencers. Our latest bonus videos include additional longsword forms that look at core skills in different ways.
