About Longsword

LongswordDDGThe longsword is one of our main weapons and the most popular weapon in HEMA. It is the foundation for all two-hand swords. The training is physically demanding, but good physique and fitness is built as the term progresses.

The sessioons will also include a technical lesson where one then applies the techniques as the term progresses.

Equipment-wise you need a longsword made from steel or a synthetic longsword made from nylon, which can be ordered through the club. A fencing mask, gloves, armguards and a cup are also necesary in the long run. as is a fencing jacked designed for HEMA.
