Seminar in Brasov, Transylvania

November 28, 2017

A great weekend seminar in Transylvania! A majestic place with a very interesting and important history to Poland!

I had a wonderful pleasure to teach the Terra Ultrasilvana team from Brasov! They proved to be wonderful hosts, apt students and great fencers!

It was a very insightful event as I had an opportunity to research and retry one of my favorite sabre manuals of De Saint Martin and mixture of Eastern European fencing!

What proved very interesting was the part concerning the Turkish fencing as it was first time I could teach it abroad, not only to my Polish students!

I am really looking forward to visit Braszów again!

Some interesting instances from the Prussian fencing

April 17, 2017

As this entry, covering the topic of Historical European Martial Arts, is a very intriguing one, it was made an official entry on the webpage. As is Easter is behind us, it was time when I had an opportunity to explore the literature dedicated to my favorite weapon, that is szabla. This time on the table were old-prints from the Prussian and Saxon masters of fencing. Those few days of free time gave me an opportunity to finish researching a period that I was focusing on for some time. Chronologically: Timlich, Roux, Seidler, Christmann and one more that would be a small surprise in the upcoming book.
