Veritas Swordplay Academy- Training in German Longsword and more. A Chapter of Selohaar Fechtschule
Veritas Swordplay Academy offers instruction in the German medieval martial arts of Master Johannes Liechtenauer. We welcome all those interested in reviving this fascinating and chivalric martial art!
The primary study track of Veritas Swordplay Academy is the German medieval
tradition Kunst des
Fechten ("Art of Fighting"), founded in the 14th Century by Master Johannes Liechtenauer. The longsword, the choice
weapon of the medieval knight, is the teaching tool of Kunst des Fechten and from it
the techniques of the other weapons in the tradition are taught.
Like any martial art, those who choose to join us in our study of medieval European martial arts
will find a source of
discipline, character development and good exercise. Additionally, the practitioner will discover the joy that comes
from resurrecting history and exploring past cultures. This martial art is about bettering ourselves
through emulating the chivalry of the medieval knight and reconnecting to a lost heritage.
