Johannes Liechtenauer:"Young knight, learn to love God and to respect women, so shall your honour grow. Cultivate knighthood and study art, which will bring you renown, and conduct yourself honourably in war. Wrestle well, take the lance, spear, sword and messer with manly courage. Strike hard! Rush in: meet your opponent or let him pass by, so that the wise may hate the one who is seen to be hemmed in.
Rely upon this truth: all arts have a length and a measure."
The School of Traditional Medieval Fencing practises the art of swordsmanship as taught by the German fencing master Sigmund Ringeck.
We study Ringeck's fencing manual and teach our students techniques and principles laid down in the 14th Century, which means that we are able to recreate this style of swordsmanship.
New Members are welcome, but we would appreciate it if you would let us know before attending your first lesson.
