A Monday off work, GCoD style.  A visit to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre and a chance to handle some of their medieval and renaissance arms and armour.  Thanks to the most knowledgeable Dr Ralph Moffat, Curator of European Arms and Armour for Glasgow Museums.

Glasgow-based group studying Historical European Swordsmanship
Introduction
The Glasgow Company of Duellists is a martial arts group studying Historical European Swordsmanship. 

Based in private training facility in Glasgow (Scotland), we are attempting to reproduce fencing arts that have been lost for many hundred of years. These are studied as true martial arts and not as ‘choreography’ or stage combat. The focus of classes is for real combat, just as the medieval and renaissance student would have experienced.

The current areas of study of the group are the medieval German school of Swordmanship using the two-handed Longsword (in German: Langenschwert) and British Backsword of both the Scottish and English traditions.
