«Kunst des Fechtens» - medieval martial art - training for individuals and groups in Compostela

Methodology

The «Art of Combat» is the martial art of medieval chivalry: precise, efficient and highly technical. A centuries old fight system codified by fourteenth century masters in old manuscripts, once forgotten and now brought back to life.

I combine in my classes both theoretical --history, principles, terminology, tactical preferences, analysis of the space-time of fighting-- with the development of specific applied techniques and practical work.

Among other things, you will learn:
- How to use the two-handed sword as the core of the syllabus
- Poleaxe, dagger and wrestling based on the teachings of the long sword
- The «Vier Leger» from where you can be attacked
- The «Fünf Hauen», five master strikes on which the Art of Combat is based.
- The secrets of «Vor and Nach and Indes, that word which cuts deep» (as an anonymous master wrote in 1389).
- How to use «Fühlen» to feel if an attack is strong or weak, and decide how you should respond.
- The virtues of «Intelligence, Will and Agility», and develop them through «training, movement and good steps».

This is apt for any age, physical condition or circumstance. We can adapt and strive to present an inclusive atmosphere.

I have equipment to loan beginning students, and you can come try the first class for free.

Background

My name is Diniz. I have 10 years of experience in the study, practice and teaching of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA): fighting systems used in Europe throughout history which have been well documented in combat manuals for more than 600 years.

I am specialized in «Kunst des Fechtens», the Art of Combat documented in central Europe from the 14th - 15th centuries using the weapons of the medieval knight: hand - to - hand combat, poleaxe, spear, long and short swords.

I've run a weekly training group for six or seven years. I also have teaching experience in seminars (AGEA --the Galician HEMA federation-- national meetings & international meetings with the Portuguese federation). I research and publish HEMA books at AGEA Editora, and write on-line articles as well.
