Synopsis: How was the medieval sword used? Although many books have been released detailing techniques of the medieval swordmasters, none of them can really be termed easily interpreted manuals of technique. For the beginner, they are hard to decipher and interpret.The well-respected founder of the prestigious Helsinki School of European Swordsmanship, Mr. Windsor has offered a nuts-and-bolts approach to teaching Italian historical swordsmanship through drills, exercises. Based on the systems of Fiore dei Liberi, Fillipo Vadi, and others, this work should be one of the first books acquired by anyone wishing to explore swordsmanship as a practical art.
About the Author: Born in Cambridge, England in 1973, Mr Windsor has studied many forms of European fencing. He has also studied Akido, T'ai Chi Chuan, and Okinawan Kobudo. Together with Paul MacDonald he is a founder of the Dawn Duellists Society and is the founder and director of the Helsinki School of European Swordsmanship.
