Sword Fighting and Medieval Swordsmanship

Welcome to our Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page for the art of sword fighting, the German Longsword, hand to hand combat weapons and sword fighting techniques.
This catalogue page has books about sword fighting, fencing, the medieval longsword, and medieval swordsmanship. Books for teaching swordsmanship as a martial art and complete combat discipline . To defeat an opponent, a swordsman must use mind and body together to anticipate attacks, carefully observing the opponent, making proper contact with the blade, and combine strategy with technique.
Sword fighting as a science, an art form and, for many, a religion that began at the dawn of civilization in ancient Egypt and has been an obsession for mankind ever since. Sword fighting was an entertainment in ancient Rome, a sacred rite in medieval Japan, and throughout the ages a favorite way to settle scores. For centuries, dueling was the scourge of Europe, banned by popes on threat of excommunication, and by kings who then couldn’t keep themselves from granting pardons—in the case of Louis XIV, in the thousands. Evidence of this passion is all around us. For example, we shake hands to show that we are not reaching for our sword. A gentleman offers a lady his right arm because his sword was once attached to his left hip. Men button their jackets to the right to give them swifter access to their sword.
