Official launching of Meyer Halben Stangen course + workshop

Post by Roger N » Fri Sep 02, 2011 11:08 am

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to announce that GHFS is now officially launching a course in Joachim Meyer Halben Stangen, starting on Sunday Sep 4.

In this course we will explore, first the basics of Joachim Meyer's Halben Stangen, and later more advanced topics like entering close-combat, grappling with the staff and disarmings. Sparring will be a vital component in all training.

Furthermore will also be exploring Meyer's Halberd techniques and mirroring all of it against Jogo do Pau.

We already have seven students and I will be instructing.

Also, parts of this has been collated into a workshop that has already been tried at the Kungskrabba event in Kungshamn and will next be given at the Swordfish event in Gothenburg in November 4-6.

I am really looking forward to all of this! :D
