Description of the Product

This book builds on the foundation laid in The Medieval Longsword, and teaches you how to train Fiore dei Liberi’s Art of Arms, as shown in his 1410 manuscript ll Fior di Battaglia. In it are explained three of the longsword forms that are used every day in The School of European Swordsmanship:
• The Cutting Drill
• The Farfalla di Ferro
• The Longsword Syllabus Form.
Each form is explained step by step and application by application, with abundant photographs and images from Fiore’s manuscript. The book takes you through each step first as a pair drill, then as part of the form, then as a starting point for further training, or for further research into Il Fior di Battaglia.

Within these pages you will find in-depth instructions and analysis, dozens of tips for how to improve your skills, and enough material for years of study.

It is very difficult to learn swordsmanship from a book that is 600 years old and written in Italian. In this book Guy Windsor has drawn on 15 years of teaching the Art, and broken everything down and explained it so that you really can learn the Art of Swordsmanship.

This book will teach you:
The theory and background of Fiore dei Liberi’s medieval longsword system. How to train safely, with and without a partner. Footwork. Blade handling skills. Guards. Defences. Attacks. Basic pair drills. How to develop your skills from basic pair drills all the way up to freeplay.

The author Guy Windsor has been training martial arts for almost 30 years, and teaching professionally since 2001, when he founded The School of European Swordsmanship.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
