Bowie and Big Knife Fighting II
November 9th, 2019
This seminar will build on students knowledge of Bowie & big knife fighting from a dueling / HEMA perspective.
The primary content of the system has been drawn from a variety of historical sources, especially the work of Colonel A.J.D. Biddle, John Styers, as well as contemporary research by Paul Kirchner, Dwight C. McElmore, William Cassidy, and others.
Beginning with a brief refresh of the basics of the system, this seminar will seek to reinforce the most important concepts before exploring new material including the use of a coat or poncho with the left hand and other ideas drawn from Mexican and Spanish sources and influences.
Ample time will be devoted to live drilling and free sparring.
