Medieval Longsword

The medieval longsword was a symbol of protection, justice, and righteousness. It is the noblest of all arms and the very essence of knighthood. Learn to fight with the longsword using the training system of 15th-century knights and nobility.

“I am the sword, deadly against all weapons. Neither spear, nor poleaxe, nor dagger can prevail against me. I will crush anyone who opposes me. I am of royal blood. I dispense justice, advance the cause of good and destroy evil. To those who learn my crossings, I will grant great fame and renown in the art of armed fighting.”
