  • Half swording
    by /u/BigWhoopingbread on May 13, 2021 at 8:11 am

    A thing that always bugged me in duels with federschwerter, blunt swords, etc. was that there was absolutely no half-swording, not even supporting the blade during a parry (From what i’ve seen at least) Yet I could not find any information on why that is the case. So, I wanted to ask you guys, since I assume that many of you are quite familiar with the subject. submitted by /u/BigWhoopingbread [link] [comments]

  • How Long Should Your Thrust be?
    by /u/SontoBontoTanto on May 13, 2021 at 5:10 am

    Do you do more of an olympic lunging thrust or just walk your point forward for a shorter thrust? Which method do you prefer for different weapons, like longsword compared to rapier? submitted by /u/SontoBontoTanto [link] [comments]

  • Baton course/Taiho-jutsu equivalent available online/school that teaches it?
    by /u/INTelliJentsia on May 13, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Are there any schools that teach baton or have a detailed course online? I’d prefer any pre-17th century sources, if possible. If not, where should I begin to look for baton material? I’ve found Fiore (dagger and baton), dussack, and grappling material. I’m looking, ideally, for material that makes use of the baton for controlling the opponent in locks, breaks, etc, if it exists. Fwiw, I will NOT be using this for self-defense of any form and do not carry a baton of any kind. submitted by /u/INTelliJentsia [link] [comments]

  • New to HEMA/WMA, What is a synthetic blade?
    by /u/GrungForgeCleric on May 12, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    I’m trying to see what is in my price range but I see synthetic blades are usually the cheapest option. I don’t want to get a flimsy plastic sword (are they flimsy?) but I realize I’m not skilled enough to use a metal weapon. But I think I main gripe is weight, is the weight of synth and metal the same or different? submitted by /u/GrungForgeCleric [link] [comments]
