Originating in the Germanic areas, the dusack was created in the 16th century as a training weapon for single edged swords, primarily the messer (the most common weapon in the area for hundreds of years). It is a short one handed weapon, designed for cutting and thrusting. In this 2 part course we will examine Joachim Meyer's Longsword and Dusack system. Beginning with fundamental Longsword guard positions, we will move into cutting with the long edge and short edge. This lays the groundwork for the Dusack which will add to that foundation.
