This was a fun day! With Stephen McKinley Henderson.


Day 2 -- Thurs 9/9

Jess Finley
How the hell do you know what's even in those old books so you can use it?

Reading old books is hard. Doing what old books say to do is also hard. Remembering what that book said so you can do it is THE WORST. But it can be easier. Let's talk about some approaches to turning your reading time into training time.

Matthew Benedict
Do you Bite your Thumb at Me? (a conversation about Honor)

This will be a talk about Honor and honor cultures: defining what these are, looking at how the role and understanding of honor changes over time, and the influence that it has in understanding how martial culture worked in the medieval and Early modern period.


Excellent information!

There's a popular misconception that swords were historically too heavy for women or small men to lift. Thus this comparison chart was created based on the actual weight of historical swords in the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, UK. If you're strong enough to pick up a baby, you're strong enough to lift and to wield the heaviest sword.

We have turned off public commenting for this post as so very many people purposefully missed the point. Swordwind is a Historical European Martial Arts (aka HEMA) School where men, women, and teens of all sizes, races, ages, orientations, and physcial abilities can (and do!) learn historically accurate sword techniques. We, as a group, intend to continue to disabuse notions that historically accurate martial arts must be limited to large, heavily muscled cis men.
Lifting a sword is the first step in the process. Anyone who can lift it is capable of learning, of practicing, of sparring, and with enough practice and dedication: of winning.
