German Longsword Study Guide
by Keith Farrell & Alex Bourdas

This book compiles the research into the subject of the Liechtenauer tradition (and its outliers) from the past three years. It is an excellent study guide for people who have learned the system from their instructors and who would like to put their knowledge into the context of the historical sources. Students with advanced skill sets and assistant instructors will find this book particularly valuable.

Keith Farrell is one of the senior instructors of the Academy of Historical Arts, and teaches regularly at international events.

Alex Bourdas is one of the instructors within the Academy of Historical Arts. His studies focus primarily on the Kunst des Fechtens.

Reviewer: Brennan Faucher from st catharines, ON Canada  
Keith Farrell is a renowned author in the community. This book clearly explains his thoughts and illustrates them for other instructors, students, or laypersons to try them out themselves.

What a book! August 6, 2016
Reviewer: Samuel Creigh from Springfield, VT United States  
This is a fantastic book. Do keep in mind, that this is an actual study guide. It contains info on the history of fighting manuals that are relevant to German fencing, and is a glossary for many of the guards and strikes. While not everything is included (where's abnehmen?) this is nonetheless a deep guide as well as a refresher course for those who practice the German system.

Reviewer: Kenneth Zech from Littleton, CO United States  
The German Longsword Study Guide has a lot of good information to lay a foundation for studying the German tradition of the longsword. I would highly recommend it, even for people who have already begun practicing!
