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