Free Courses: Human Maintenance, Longsword, Rapier
learn to look after your body, and get some sword training too!
This course includes basic instruction on breathing practice, meditation, looking after your joints, and a beginners' class in medieval Longsword, and renaissance Rapier.
This is intended to get you started in the main aspects of historical martial arts, free of charge. You don't have to do all of it (if Longsword's not your thing, that's fine). If you find yourself wanting to go deeper into any of these areas, there are much more detailed and deeper courses available through the Mastering the Art of Arms subscription, here: https://swordschool.teachable.com/p/the-everything...
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, The Theory and Practice of Historical Martial Arts, and The Swordsman's Quick Guide series of ebooks along with many others. 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.
