  • Could someone please clearly explain the long edge and short edge of the blade to me as I’m just not quite getting it.

    All the explanations I’ve read so far explain that the long edge is the edge facing the same way my knuckles are facing but my knuckles are inbetween the two edges facing outwards so I dont really understand it. I think its just me not getting it but if someone could try and explain id appreciate it hugely. Thanks! submitted by /u/freddie68 [link] [comments]

  • Should I even go to Blood & Iron after this is over?

    I’ve seen a post about them and I’ve seen a lot of people saying they aren’t the best. They’re pretty close to me though and I was thinking about going there after. What do you guys think? submitted by /u/the_holy_dunsparce [link] [comments]

  • Montante Work – The Luis Barbarán II Rules
    by /u/pippybear on January 20, 2021 at 4:33 am

    Hey guys! After asking on here where to start, based on u/Just-MK suggestion, I decided to start with Barbarán, because it was so straight forward, and because there is an excellent video series covering the rules. Montante Barbarán 1-9 After going thru the rules, I still have some questions. – I notice I favor the false edge when doing rising reveses, is that a common occurrence in Montante? because true edge rising reveses feels like the hardest thing in the world! – For rule 7&8, is the represa normally treated as a pendulum step or a cross step? – Rule 9 would be so much easier if I could do it all true edge and if the sword didn’t weigh 6 lbs. (oh wait, that’s just me complaining, ^,^;; ) Also, feel free to critique on body mechanics, edge alignment, all of that good stuff, because I seriously have no idea what I’m doing! submitted by /u/pippybear [link] [comments]

  • Red Dragon Jacket thoughts

    Hey WMA, I’m in the process of building my kit and have been on the fence between the spes 2.0 heavy or the red dragon armory heavy coat. Is the built in gorget worth the extra money? Fwiw I fence primarily longsword but would eventually like to get into probably more one handed weapons as well. I’m also open to any more suggestions on kit! Currently have some sparring glove mittens with the hourglass cuff and my mask so I’m pretty open to any ideas. Thanks! submitted by /u/TheUlty05 [link] [comments]
