Master's Chanbara Sword Fighting - 2009 Space Coast Regionals Event

Master Steven Franz and Master Matt Stephan battle it out for the Space Coast Master Title in Chanbara. Some odd rules for Chanbara were used but it was a good battle between friends all together.

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.

Sword's Path | Fight like a Witcher - Rise of the White Wolf - part 1


Geralt's solo training from the camp scene. The footwork is much easier to perform on tatami mats, than uneven or soft ground, but it's doable.
Be careful not to strain your wrists! Practice slowly until your hands are comfortable with the movements.

PS. Big thanks for @Siegfried Song for cleaning up my audio - go check out his channel as he's an awesome metal singer!



I'm a 25 years old HEMA instructor and sword performer from Poland. I've been fencing since I was 12, evolving through sport fencing, polish saber, kenjutsu, to finally settle on renaissance german longsword (go Team Meyer!).

I do blacksmithing for a living. Feel free to review my crafts at:

Aron Szilagyi Szilagyi Wins Fencing Sabre Gold - London 2012 Olympics

Full highlights of Hungary's Aron Szilagyi's Gold medal win against Italy's Diego Occhiuzzi in the Men's Fencing Sabre at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Fencing was included for the first time at the 1896 Games in Athens, and has remained on the Olympic programme since then. The women's fencing competition entered the Games in 1924 in Paris. Today, men and women compete in individual and team events, in which three types of weapon are used: foil, epee and sabre. The foil was, at first, the only weapon used by women, until the 1996 Games in Atlanta, when women's epee was introduced. Women's sabre appeared for the first time on the Olympic programme in Athens in 2004.

Tankendo - Short Sword Fighting 短剣道

In tankendo, exponents use a 53-cm-long bamboo sword, less than half the length of those used in kendo. As tankendo was originally based on bayonet fighting, thrusts form the main mode of attack. With its thrilling up-close action, the martial art is gaining enthusiasts worldwide. 6th dan expert Baptiste Tavernier discusses the French influence on tankendo as well as the overall efficacy of short sword fighting, and we report from an international tankendo seminar with attendees from 15 nations.

Krishnan Prathap unleashes the flowing power and beauty of the Tiger Fight Sword & Shield form within Kalaripayattu. We met Krishnan Prathap and his class in Bangalore/ Bengalaru in Karnataka.

Krishna Prathap began his training in kalaripayattu at a tender age of six under the guidance of his father, Sri Karthikeyan Gurukkal. He later moved to Vallabhatta Kalari and underwent training under Gurukkal Sri Shankara Narayana Menon and the Sri. Krishnadas Gurukkal.

Krishna Prathap belongs to the second generation of Kalaripayattu practitioners and has more than 32 years of experience. He was lauded for his skills that was displayed in the 1995 Asian federation games held in Madras and at the National integration Martial Festival held in Calicut.

He has to his credit several medals and awards. The Kerala State Championship and many gold medals in various championships to name a few. He is also the national coach for Pankration Athlima, Greek Martial Art. As the Hon. Gen. Sec of the Karnataka State Kalaripayattu Association he is committed to popularize the art form and revive its diminished glory in the time to come. He is also the Hon. Treasurer, Martial Arts Games Federation of India (Unifying Martial Arts games across the Indian sub-continent).

He has contributed to popularizing the art form internationally by performing and scripting kalaripayattu in France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Italy, London, USA, Singapore, Middle East and Sri Lanka which has won him great appreciation from various organizations and the media. Krishna Prathap is now bringing out a new grammar in the field of dance by choreographing Kalaripayattu to the melody of music by associating himself with experts in Kathakali, Mohiniyattom, Bharatha Nattyam, Kuchipudi and Kathak.

Krishna Prathap is deeply motivated to popularize Kalaripayattu as an Indian art form and takes great interest in training students. He is associated with his trained Kalari team of more than 200 school children to perform at the Republic day parade in New Delhi. His team has performed on the opening ceremony of the ICC Champions League Cricket, 2009 in Bangalore, in collaboration with a team of 16 of students and masters from Shaolin Temple for Kung-fu,China. He has graced the stage on many occasions globally alongside great artistes from various other fields and has been a torch bearer of Kalaripayattu, world-wide.

Impressive fighting skills at work. There is a reason why these guys teach historical swordsmanship.

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.

Advanced Sword Spinning Tutorial for Martial Arts!!!

This is an advanced variation to sword spinning or flowering. There are two prerequisites to learning this technique, if you do not know them please check out my videos on my other channel for a detailed breakdown I also have basic breakdowns of these in my sword training playlist. The true key to this flower is in the transition, when you can smooth out the rough edges and move seamlessly from one to the other you will have it down!

You can also add to this flower by moving the spinning sword in a circular pattern along the side of the body simultaneously. Have fun and spin some swords!!!
