Advanced Longsword: Form and Function (Mastering the Art of Arms Book 3)
Renowned swordsman and author Guy Windsor explains three of the longsword forms that are used every day in The School of European Swordsmanship:
• The Cutting Drill
• The Farfalla di Ferro
• The Longsword Syllabus Form.
Each form is explained step by step and application by application, with abundant photographs and images from Fiore’s manuscript. Guy takes you through each step first as a pair drill, then as part of the form, then as a starting point for further training, or for further research into Il Fior di Battaglia. Within these pages you will find in-depth instructions and analysis, dozens of tips for how to improve your skills, and enough material for years of study.
