    Hey guys,

    Here are some vids showing half-swording techniques from Hans Talhoffer's 1467 manual. Very cool stuff. :) Gotta love the Mortschlag!




    (my favourite!)


    Best regards,

    -Mark

    Wow, neat! It's great to have someone take the time to illustrate all these with live-action demos!

    13th century sword arts... still alive and kicking. Cool.
    My only beef was with how the vids were put together. It was hard to keep up with each step because it was interrupted with an illustration. Sorry, my mind doesn't work that way. Rather look at all the illustrations then the slo mo or vice-versa.
    Otherwise... very neat.
