Mastering the Art of Arms Volume 3
Advanced Longsword: Form and Function
by Guy Windsor

This book builds on the foundation laid in The Medieval Longsword, and teaches you how to train Fiore dei Liberi's Art of Arms, as shown in his 1410 manuscript ll Fior di Battaglia. Renowned swordsman and author Guy Windsor explains three of the longsword forms that are used every day in The School of European Swordsmanship:
  • The Cutting Drill
  • The Farfalla di Ferro
  • The Longsword Syllabus Form.
Each form is explained step by step and application by application, with abundant photographs and images from Fiore's manuscript. Guy takes you through each step first as a pair drill, then as part of the form, then as a starting point for further training, or for further research into Il Fior di Battaglia. Within these pages you will find in-depth instructions and analysis, dozens of tips for how to improve your skills, and enough material for years of study.

Guy Windsor has been training martial arts for 30 years, and teaching professionally since he founded The School of European Swordsmanship in 2001. The School has branches and study groups all over the world.

Reviewer: Luis Vazquez from Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico  
I bought the 800 N pants, protection for knee and calf, as well as the elbow and forearm gear. I was suggested to pay for items to be shipped with the US post Office. But I have had terrible experiences with it, so I asked purple heart to ship it with DHL or UOS and so they did. My items arrived to Mexico promptly. It´s the best HEMA store in the US.
