This club is really awesome. We read the medieval texts of Liechtenauer and try to reconstruct the exact movements. It’s really fun! But also very different from LARP fighting, where you have to avoid hitting the head at any cost. Naturally, authentic swordfighting is exactly vice versa. Those fights are not so much about posing, they’re supposed to be really quick and the quickest way to make your enemy stop hitting you is to aim for his head. We do wear fencing masks for that purpose, but I still can’t manage to aim for somebody’s face. Maybe that’s for the best.
