In longsword and similar, what do you find are easy things to learn, and what’s hard?

So, supposing you have been doing longsword and possibly some other weapons for years, sparred a lot, and possibly competed or taught others. In your experience, what would you say are some “easy” skills and things to learn and develop in this type of fencing? Stuff that you maybe learn almost naturally, just by coming to practice, doing the drills, and sparring And on the other hand, what is more challenging or harder to learn or develop, possibly needing some more conscious effort and focus to get there? I’m primarily interested in the “sport” of historical fencing as a context, and not so much the challenges of researching the sources and so on. 🙂 submitted by /u/sakkeana [link] [comments]

I’m most curious about the different roles and niches that the Dussak, Rapier (as described by Meyer), and Longsword took up. In what sort of situation would one use a dussak over a rapier and why, and how did longswords play into this? submitted by /u/nickmavrick [link] [comments]
Sword pics for shut-ins! A custom longsword we did at Arms and Armor to brighten your day. I think that the red leather turned out particularly well.
