The Long Sword in Codex Wallerstein

The Long Sword in Codex Wallerstein

Dierk Hagedorn

Longsword fencing in the easy way: A decision tree of opportunities with Codex Wallerstein (a.k.a. von Baumann’s Fechtbuch). A practical discussion or a theoretical workshop about strong or weak; wide or near; either or.

After the initial encounter, a small yet complete and surprisingly simple fencing system develops in 26 techniques. We shall look into some of the manuscript’s aspects and bring them to life. Getting safely into the fight will be our main concern. Wallerstein specialists highly welcome.

Needed Equipment:
Longsword (preferably no Feder).

Skill level of Participants:
Irrelevant. Being able to walk and hold a sword decently will suffice.
