Swordsmanship: The Basic Types of Defense


Get 33% off on Life is Feudal with promo code: Skallagrim33

In this video I’m giving an introduction to fundamental basics of how to defend against sword attacks in historical European martial arts. The types of defensive action I’m discussing are evasion, blocking, parrying, and counters / active parries.
I’m hoping it might be helpful or inspirational to new HEMA practitioners, video game animators, movie choreographers, etc.

  1. [You support your blade with your hand]. Congratulations!You lost 4 fingers on your left hand!

  2. the game seems to suck that he recommends but hindsight is 20 20 so maybe I dont blame him https://store.steampowered.com/app/700030/Life_is_Feudal_MMO/

  3. He's soooooo evil, he doesn't have a shadow. I'm afraid that's the light side and the one explaining is the evil one. The shadow is the evil hiding within the mortal.

  4. Huh. I actually am that game dev type who's looking for inspiration for animations.
    I had this move stuck in my head that looks like what's at 4:53 and it just seemed so elegant and beautifully.
    I absolutely had to know the application of this type of high horizontal counter-swivel, whatever it's officially called.
    Glad I found this video. That rock-paper-scissors bit sounded so game-like
