Three, the basic step

The existing German fencing tutorial manual in step in this respect is not much attention, can be assumed and similar as fencing system. Here we only introduce the most basic steps.

The starting position of most fencing system are all the same. Stand at attention, feet shoulder width apart, any one foot a step forward, left foot right foot down is not important, because according to the environment to adjust to changing circumstances. The front of the foot toes pointing to the front of you, the back foot is externally rotated forty-five degrees. This is the so-called T-shaped step, this attitude can make you around, can keep balance. Bend the knees slightly, this activity is more ease and fluency, beginners often ignore this point. Keep the upper body upright, the focus fell in between the legs, try to relax the body. Relaxation is very important, some beginners holding the sword began to stiff shoulders, resulting in slow and inaccurate. First practice step do not take the sword, because your attention will be how to hold a sword to attract the past without attention to footwork.

First of all to practice is the most simple before and after the pace. Open t step, at the foot of the front foot to push forward a step, the rear foot also with further, keep toes pointed motionless in the whole process, so that the back tee start. Then practice the backward. Forefoot push back foot back, step back to the point, the T-shaped step before heel. Do this smoothly, do not let your head under arbitrary point. This is the most basic step, in not the long time should be mastered. After finishing move back and forth, tried in the same way for moving around, the next is around the oblique direction, after the exchange t step before and after feet all the exercise again, until skilled.

A step is called "alternating step", is also very simple. In order to tee start, foot step forward into new forefoot, forming T-shaped step pose new, but the whole body moves forward. Then the same practice alternating step backward.

Alternating step can also be used as a moving sideways, in fact to avoid attack often will use slant alternating step, such as your defense posture to his left foot in front, if the opponent cuts to your head, it should be to the alternating step moves to the right to avoid Jianfeng, if the pace is larger then let the left leg in tow the back and quickly back to defensive stance. You must exchange practice two feet, pay attention to move smooth and fluent, end pace going back to t step posture solid balanced up.

Structure and terminology, the two swords

The sword has many different styles, but this does not want to involve the complicated problem. Even the same style sword, sword in hand will choose different different blade length and the position of the center of gravity according to their own preferences and habits, just about these details discussed rarely handed down. A typical sword should be double-edged, consideration should be given to the hilt length can grasp with both hands, and not in one hand use too clumsy.

A sword can be roughly divided into two parts: the hilt and blade. The sword hilt also includes, hand and the handle head three parts. The blade is the main points of attack, but in some cases, such as the opponent is very close and effective use of blade can not handle head and hand, also can use weapons.

The body also can be divided into two halves: "blade", namely the hilt to blade middle part; "weak blade", namely, from the central to the point of the sword blade. Here the "strong" and "weak" does not mean structural rigidity and vulnerable, but that in the block when the lever principle despite relatively less likely to be pushed aside. Weak blade movement speed faster, and your attacks will be used to the advantage of the weak body.

The blade of the sword has nomenclature. When you grip the sword, near the second knuckle blade is the long edge ", the other side near the forearm is the short blade", other systems also have to be named respectively "true blade" and "false edge". Many people use the long edge attacks, but also the use of the double-edged in Liechtenauer systems is common.

In some fantasy novels in the eyes of readers, the medieval sword as Hallows wrapped with a layer of a majestic aura; and in some boasts profound eyes, medieval sword but is heavy, don't call the hands, the use of these weapons is a group of people living in dangerous times rude savage, accustomed to use brute force rather than skill to fight. If you'd like to spend some time to read the works then fencing or manuscript, then perhaps this misunderstanding and prejudice will vanish, you can be of some of the most sophisticated in deadly combat can use and effective martial arts in these writings. To the UK from Italy, different countries, different times have different fencing system master taught different style, we tried to give you a brief here is just one of them, namely the German fencing master Johannes Liechtenauer (Johannes Liechtenauer), the use of weapons is double-edged, hand hands for the figure ten the sword, the sword is generally referred to as the "sword" (Longsword).
