Sword Fighting: A Manual for Actors and Directors

Expert guidance on how to act authentically with historical weapons...at your own risk! Divided into two authoritative sections: Part 1 lays down a constructive philosophy for training (essential, even if dummy weapons are being used), and Part 2 provides illustrated step-by-step re-creations of the fighting styles of the most commonly used swords from the late Middle Ages to the end of the 18thC.
