Sword fighting

Expert saber sparring: Lee Smith vs Richard Marsden

Impressive fighting skills at work. There is a reason why these guys teach swordsmanship, they are amazing.

This match took place at the Blood & Iron historical martial arts school in New Westminster, BC, Canada. Richard Marsden, co-founder and principal instructor of the Phoenix Society of Historical Swordsmanship, came for a visit to give two seminars, one on Fiore's longsword and another on Polish saber fencing. After the instruction he sparred with Lee Smith, co-founder and principal instructor of Blood & Iron.

Learn Sword Fighting 1: Basic Attack

Welcome to our sword fighting tutorial for beginners. We will show you the basics of medieval european swordsmanship. Let's start with the so called Oberhau - a simple strike from above.


Easiest type of sword fighting to learn for beginners?

Here Lucy Easton (Schola Gladiatoria SG5) and Matt Easton (Schola Gladiatoria SG1) consider which type of sword style is easiest to learn for beginners - specifically over the course of the first two months
Sword fighting can be harder or easier to learn based on many factors, such as the weapon type, the system being studied and the teaching method.
This is NOT a statement of what styles of swordsmanship are 'best', or what you should do. Every person wanting to get into HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) should choose based on their own preferences.
Also, every person's experience in this will be different - some people prefer certain weapons and styles, some people find some weapons come more naturally to them than others. Not all people are the same of course.

MMA with Medieval Armor and Blunt Weapons

Every year there is a medieval style combat tournament that takes place in a castle in Europe; that means swords, full body armor, and shields. This past year we followed the American team to the event to get a sense of how intense the competition is. We saw major injuries, the kind of patriotic pride you see in the Olympics, and sparks fly - literally.
