Learn Highland Broadsword Basics
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!
