The longsword has been described as "The queen of all weapons," comparing it to the chess piece. The longsword can do almost anything another weapon can do, and is the cornerstone of this class.
Students will learn techniques taught by numerous masters, across three centuries of medieval and renaissance Europe.
Students practice against others of their own weight class, and against the instructor. Students who demonstrate enough control and maturity will be allowed to practice with other students outside of their weight class.
In addition to the longsword, a knight would have carried numerous other weapons with him, such as a shield, spear, or dagger. Swords of Chivalry includes instruction in all of these weapons, and even in unarmed combat.
