Joachim Meyer

The making of this book left him deeply indebted, and the search for potential buyers led him to leave Strasbourg and work as a Master-of-Arms at the court of the Duke of Schwerin. Art of Combat, Book 1, Chapter How you will strike through these will be further described here, and then I will soon take you farther through all Strikes and Stances on both mryer, both Right longswird Left, which will be fully described, and of this I will disclose all favourable methods shortly but will start by describing only one method.

If one cuts at you from his right, thus cut also from your right simultaneously, with the short edge and crossed hands, so that in this, the sword proceeds, thus step in with a double step with the right foot, quickly around to his left, and fall with your long edge on his arm, now set above, and if he drives upwards, and will not trouble you with the slice, thus follow after with an under slice on his arm, shove him from you how the figure nearby demonstrates, that is a proper and Old Cut and cuts down a Master with it.

Must be a mistake… Well, complex joacihm it is, thanks for clearing most of the confusion! To understand the body mechanics involved in a technique we not only have to train lpngsword bodies so longswword are strong and agile enough, we also need to use… Continue Reading.

Art of Combat, Book 1, Chapters 3 and When at the onset you come into the Left Wrath stance, then drive over the right thigh, as above with the left, one strike, two, three, yet then step and strike from your low left out strongly through your right upward, so that your sword flies over in the air in an upstrike toward longsworx right, then twitch over your head and strike a strong traverse to his left ear, onward quickly crosswise and high traverse to all four openings: This is the correct gloss for the previous verses, which tells you to wind twice or slice on the weapon.

But rather has more divisions there with one knows One from the other to distinguish, namely thus, when one fights from the Steer, he will generally use jjoachim Strikes and devices, that are assigned to the Steer therefore he who will fight with them, thus should he pay attention from which or through which division he goes against in fighting, thus that he may know best, with what cuts or devices he should lay on against him, in that he in the Vor runs off, then your fighting and your cuts to him and techniques lomgsword be correctly cut in and soon put, it must usually give way to harm And should you know thus with the four guards that the opponent is divided into four parts, how in the above figure it is shown, the two from High are called the Ox, the other two are called the Plow take an example, when you hold the weapon high, to the right or the left thus you stand in Ox or Steer, what cuts and strikes you do from the ox, you can also do from the other High Guards.


Because you have now learned the Strikes you can approach the subject of how longword displace those Strikes, and come to learn and understand these just as the Strikes have now been heeded and cannot be dismissed, and will be solidified from noting and treating the basics with special care. The Circle also comes from the Crooked Cuts and is a particularly good technique for deception, compared to others, because it does not just run off, unlike other deceptive techniques, like ablauffen and the like, but rather when one does it correctly and strikes the Circle lobgsword hard with the short edge in running by.

Item Mark when you encounter one who is in Straight parrying or in the Slice thus come in the zufechten into the Sideguard on your left side, throw the Half edge over his right arm to his face, the second proceeds from under with the Long edge through his face.

Staying is two moded, firstly when the swords stop each other, watch what One wants to fence with then and where you can attack your opponent if you will. Note when an opponent comes before you in the guard of the Plow, then attack happily with the Longswor Cut, As soon as he drives out, then work to his lower openings and further to all four openings.

The Strong of the Sword is the name for the part running from the Cross or Hilt to the middle of the blade, the Weak is from the middle to and with the point or end itself, from which the Long and Short edges grow.

Thus I will describe yet another part with a different start.

Joachim Meyer’s Longsword: Beware the Prellhauw!! – partikron

When you stand in the Right or Left Wrath, and one strikes to you from below committing to your right or left opening, then strike high outward with the long edge and, just as it engages, then shoot the point on his sword inward to his face, just then drive off with your hands and work to the next opening with elements of going before or after.

This week we will be taking advantage of one of the greatest benefits from reading somewhat later masters, like Joachim Meyer and George… Continue Reading. Then each one shall probe to hit the four points, be met there, and have to guard against same, and thus must always be on Guard, ready to displace.

Note when you displace with the horizontal cross guard, high up over your head, mejer is called the Crown.

Item If you are a Strong man, so come into Changer like before, cut his forward held Bow with the Half edge from under and away from you, cut nimbly after to the face.


You will find the true Eisenport presented more fully later in the treatise on rapier combat. Despite the fact that most people were armed to some degree in the German Free Cities, they took violence very seriously. That is cut the hard strike off from you from both sides.

The first group is named the Lead or Principal strikes, on which all other strikes are based, and which are four, Over, Under, Middle, meter Wrathful strikes. Now you are in Nebenhut for the longsword.

And as soon as it connects, then wind again with the short edge in at his head, and in this winding, jerk your pommel well upward, so that your blade again snaps around, so that in your cut, lognsword right hand comes back over your left, hit then with crossed hands, and thus in snapping around, wind in below to his right ear, and step at the same time, quickly with your left foot well out to his right.

Then thirdly, achieve the ability to extend the art in your own right, and from your clarity attain and exude the proper judgement in Stance and Strikes so that Joachmi will not have lontsword learn this art unguided and, because of your unspoken word, ill is wrought and they thus learn wrongly to the detriment of the art.

The low parts are guarded with the Plough, whose two modes are similar figures for two sides, the Right and the Left, and so are named the Right and Left Longswor, and both will become for you nothing else than stabs outward from below.

Along the considered lines you can move onwards, etc. Meyer really covered them all!

Under this as and when he is reached for work and the arms show he will strike, then fall low with your sword onto his arm and behind his charge so that he can not come to work, as he will then not be able to rightly defend from this, then thrust to him with an incomplete shove from yourself, that he likewise shows that he would fall, and meanwhile slash to the next opening that you know you have, but if he reaches this and strikes you off, then be there again with the cut or displacement, and fall against his strike on the blade, if he goes off the blade again, then cut him on the arm again, but if he stays on your sword then thrust his sword aside with your hilt and nimbly let your sword fly again to the next opening and swing to him after your need.

This is of two kinds; one is called the single, and the other the double.
