You'd Better Get Studying...

This is what I practice. I have a Spanish Rapier made by Hanwei Swords (and knife or dirk) and a 1904 Austrian Cavalry Saber made by Cold Steel.

I have a fencing helmet that will withstand a strike with a flail mace, leather armour, and various other impliments.

But you can have a sword and it is no good if you don't know how to use it.

When they take your guns, people will train with knives and swords. Here are two videos and the link at the bottom is a link to my Clan Chief's Western martial Arts School. We teach "Highland Broadsword" technique.

Better get yourself a sword, at least.

It's not that hard. But it's definitely Aerobic.

You can practice with a stick as well. Sticks are good weapons too. But here is a video of the "Scottish Highland Regimental Broadsword" exercise we practice.

This is level "One".

You can expect to spend between $250.00 to $2,500.00 for a good battle ready sword. then you have all of the other accessories. I got everything I have for pretty close to $1,000.00.

It's about as expensive as buying a gun, amo and accessories.

Hell yes, that's probably a good idea to start out with a stick. I can see that being great exercise for a bunch of reasons. May I ask though, is there a particular reason the other hand is resting on your hip? 13.gif

Very cool! Growing up in the Midwest I was involved with fencing -

Mostly the white picket variety and the occasional barbed wire. chuckle.gif

Seriously, I bet it is quite aerobic. I'm sure it's a great workout.

Shields tend to get in the way, but they serve a purpose, I suppose.
