SWORD GUILD VIKING WEAPONS PRACTICE
Guild members regularly meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening at the
Higgins from 5:00 to 6:25PM to practice
Viking weapons techniques. We practice the speculative reconstruction of
Viking-age techniques developed at the Higgins.
We use a series of drills, games, and exercises to
martial fundamentals, and then use expanded versions of the
exercises to research and to build our knowledge of Viking fighting
moves. The work is physically vigorous, mentally challenging, and above
Videos showing a sample of some of the drills we use in our
weekly practice session are available on YouTube,
Combat Training 1,
Combat Training 2, and
Combat Training 3.
Participants must be Guild members in good standing. Schedule changes
and updates are posted on the Guild mail list. For further information,
contact the Guild via e-mail.
