Introduction to German Halfsword

This class will look at some of the fundamental concepts of the halfssword; converting the use of a longsword into a short spear or prybar. We’ll look at where to target an opponent in armor, some basic principles of attack and defense, then wrestling at the halfsword. This will be a good foundation for those interested in Harnishfechten (armored fighting), or for anyone who’s found themselves too close to their opponent.
