Or you could just enlist and practice fencing irl. That's how I base off most of my moves.


This was actually based off of German and Italian medieval treatises on fighting with a longsword while ''unarmored''. Just thought that'd fascinate you.

I have a slight hunch the people who did this to survive a few centuries ago knew what they were doing. Just a slight one.

Indeed, there's also historical fencing that is a practice and profession aimed to recreate the moves and fundamentals of several eras of combat. It's how we know such information.

There's also HEMA, Historical European Martial Arts, it's a sport in the Netherlands.


Yes, let's not forget them.

Along with other organisations listed on W**tenauer. It's like w*kiped*a, but for medieval treatises and academically reliable.

This wasn't even on page 20, eh? Only need to bump these godly threads like once a year. Stop that. The purpose of life is finding the largest burden that you can bear and then indeed bearing it.
