Ringen am Schwert || Brittany Reeves

Brittany Reeves || Mordhau Historical Combat || Mesa, Arizona, USA

Weapons: longswords, masks, gloves

This class will focus on how and when to safely apply grappling in a swordfight. It is a beginner friendly look at Ringen am Schwert, therefore, students do not need any grappling experience to participate. However, this will include standing grapples and takedowns. We will analyze the biomechanics that make these techniques work for people of all sizes and how we can modify the techniques to be martially harmful or tournament/sparring friendly, depending on our needs. Swords and masks required.
