This class is our main German Longsword class. New TSG students, students unfamiliar with the German Liechtenauer Tradition, or those who are interested in focusing on longsword fundamentals should first attend our Longsword Fundamentals class.
The Core Longsword Class takes a quicker, more intense pace than the Longsword Fundamentals class. The pace and focus of this class is designed to help students begin and improve their ability to fight with the longsword in free-sparring. The class itself will consist of the study and practice of the mastercuts and the other Liecthenauer hauptstucke, along with a series of drills designed to train the spontaneous application of these principles.
While we still have extra loaner swords, students in the Core class should have their own safety equipment (appropriate gloves and masks).
Please note: In order for members to particpate we need everyone to sign a participation waiver. Although we do everything we can to train safely and effectively, with all martial arts there is always a risk of injury. These waivers ensure that no one, participants and teachers a like, is put in undue legal risk. Both forms can be found at http://hemaalliance.com/?page_id=1019. Please print, sign, and bring both forms to practice. Waivers will also be available at pratice if you need them. Thanks!
