Other Weapons Training

The purpose of training with other weapons is to expand and enhance the student's "experience" with respect to longsword training by incorporating training drills based on other weapons types. These would include unarmed or grappling combat techniques (some aspects of "ringen" from Talhoffer's manuscript), unarmed vs. knife combat (Talhoffer, Liberi and Marozzo) and knife vs. knife (Talhoffer, Liberi and Marozzo). Many of the subtleties of combat cannot be adequately learned and trained with when the focus is only on a single weapons type, and therefore, this training system presents certain elements to expand one's expertise and experience in martial training.
