About the Event


Broadsword, together with single rapier, is one of the two first weapon-based stage combat disciplines in the NSFS test system. The style of the weapon offers a way for beginners to find a lowered stance, a grounded form, and grace in blade work. The weapon’s weight often provides a physical challenge in blade work and safety. The weapon relies heavily on cuts, also utilizing thrusts, and extra care needs to be taken in power management. Broadswords used in classes resemble the longswords of the 14th to the 16th centuries but the principles of this discipline can easily be adapted to eastern or western swords that are cut oriented.

Come to learn, and come to play! We teach in English and/or Finnish, depending on the needs of the group.
