FOR LEARNING THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF learning the technical aspects of this book goes into the philosophy of training and how to train with ifferent types of fencers It also has some technical Agricultural Engineering detail andrillstechniue however this book really nicely breaks own some of the metaphysical or mental aspects of learning and fighting with a Longsword Highly recommend this book especially paired with Guy Windsor s Longsword book As with his book on longsword I recommend this book to anyone who is just starting or anyone that has been practicing for a while or even instructing Whether learning on your own or already a member of a club or learning community this book contains invaluable information that goes a long way to improving your understanding and mastery of the longsword material. Largely superceded byThe Medieval Longsword which came out in 2014 but it is unsurpassed as a general guide to how and why you should train swordsmanshi.
