    Re: European Sword Training?

    I don't know if this group have been 'logged' in the fora anywhere previously but I found their explanatory pages of what Historical European Swordsmanship was about to be well written and very readable:

    Jitatomoni Urami Kakotsu Kokoronashi - advice I am very poor at implementing

    Rembo no michi omoi kokoro nashi - proof that not all old wisdom is all that wise

    Aye, their DVD's are quite informative too. Nothing too flash and lots of repetitions so you can get the feel for what's going on in a technique.
