Longsword (or other) System Comparatives?

Postby MEversbergII » 27 Apr 2014 19:35

Has anyone created a compare/contrast between the two major "Schools" of Longsword - Lichtenauer and Fiore? I was only familiar with Lichtenauer's system and his successors, and really only know the names of a few guards in Fiore, having never even seen an "Intro to Italian Longsword" vid before. I know there's some overlap (because Physics demands this), but I'd be interested in seeing how the two compare and contrast to each other.

This also extends to other weapons and their systems, but longsword was the one that springs to mind first.

When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.

Daniel Jaquet organised an event in January to deal with specifically this issue :) there were comparative workshops and some round table discussions. He has written up his notes from the round tables and posted them here: http://www.hroarr.com/difference-and-similarities-between-german-and-italian-traditions-roundtable-review/

And the video recordings of the round tables are also available on that page.
