Learn Highland Broadsword Basics

50


50 per visit - Virtual OK

Ever interested in historical martial arts? Do you want to reconnect with your heritage or a culture you resonate with while exercising?

Now you can do it with a sharp piece if metal in your hand!

There are many coll and interesting things to learn about Highland Broadsword and I can teach you the basics.

The first few sessions will be about working on your footwork, but by the 4th lesson you will be holding a sword in hand (or whatever you can find that might resemble one.)

If you complete all the sessions of level one you will:
- Be able to use battlefield footwork
- Have a clear understanding of all possible attacks
- Know all the classic aggressive and defensive stances
- Be able to parry attacks with a sword
- Be trained in sword safety and respect

Tips on how to make a practice sword and how to work on basics outside of the sessions is included.

The first and second levels of broadsword are comprised of 16 lessons, each available over 2 sessions.

Please join me in having fun with swords!

Training & Qualifications


Studied Highland Broadsword for over a year and am considered Advanced level.

There were 4 levels through which I learned broadsword and I am able to teach the first two with confidence.

This includes basic, intermediate and advanced footwork, guards, parries, and cuts, and the training drills necessary to hone these.

Availability & Preferences


Evenings and weekends. EST.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Addison Jackel

An eclectic gentleman, my interests vary wildly from e-business to historical martial arts and often encapsulate activities like dancing, singing, expressing my spirituality, meditation, yoga, a passi...ve but burning interest in photography, poetry, prose, leather work, mechanics for the mechanically dull and higher sciences. To really understand me you could attempt to study my life under a microscope - read from my extensive library, share my meals, converse on every subject. Or perhaps just give me a ring up and meet for a coffee! I, much like all of you have a lot of golden value to share with the world and I am interested in hearing your story!show more
