The Medieval Longsword Complete Course

Learn Fiore's longsword material from the ground up.

  Enroll in Course

This course will save you years of fruitless effort, by training you from the very beginning in Fiore's art of arms as applied to the longsword. To begin with, all you need is a longsword simulator, a fencing mask, and a friend to practice with (after the second class). The course will take you step by step through how to move, how to hold and swing the sword, basic blows and guards, basic defences, all the way up to a complete run-through of all of Fiore's longsword on foot out of armour material. It then continues to teach you how to become skilled, not just knowledgeable, and how to identify and correct weaknesses in your fencing skill.

You are welcome to share your course enrolment with at least one friend, or even your whole club (if you have one). After the first two sections you will need to be working with a partner, so it's best that you bring your friends along from the beginning.

The course includes carefully planned class videos, and also books, a glossary, and all sorts of other bonuses.

Guy Windsor

I have been training martial arts for 30 years, and teaching swordsmanship professionally since I founded The School of European Swordsmanship in 2001. The School has branches and study groups all over the world, so I have taught thousands of students, from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures. My books include The Swordsman’s Companion, The Duellist’s Companion, The Medieval Dagger, The Medieval Longsword, as well as The Swordsman's Quick Guide series of ebooks. It's my job to help you achieve your goals. I do this by teaching in person, through my books, and through these online courses.


"Learning swordsmanship under the guidance of Guy Windsor is an extraordinary privilege. His holistic approach to the art of combat is a result of lifelong research into historical arms and sources, combined with a profound understanding of the human body, and skills gained in decades of martial arts practice. The human being is at the heart of his teachings, and the sword is his chosen path to bring out the best in his students. When training with Guy, expect no less than improving your inner self and your health while gaining proficiency at arms."
