Longsword Class Notes: The Five Meisterhaus and how we do them at DDS

This is the first of a series of short posts setting out what we do in the DDS German Longsword Class. They're intended for people who already attend the DDS Longsword class. For this reason, we haven't bothered with illustrations, though these may come.

Since these are class notes, we haven't justified our interpretations or provided citations. However, each and every technique given here fits the Goliath and associated family of texts and has been rigorously tested. (Some sources here.)

Please note that we know we have done Bad Things when anglicizing the German terms.
