Had a good night last night at longsword practice. Primarily we were working on two Master Cuts–the Zornhau, and the Krumphau, using them to “break” an attack or guard, and then using “Fühlen” or feeling of the pressure of the opposing blade, and working around it using various “windings” such as “mutieren” and “duplieren.”
I did get to play a little with my side sword and “cloak” (actually my fencing jacket) against longsword. Fun stuff.
A pretty good example video below I found of some guys on YouTube (although some of the stuff is a little hard to see here) of use of the Krumphau, with accompanying text from the different master texts:
As you can see, very interesting, fluid work, which admittedly, appeals to me.
