Did a presentation for the NJ Freemasons ATT Lodge #77
A History of European Swordsmanship
This presentation will begin with an overview of historical European swords through the ages. A variety of swords will be brought in and participants will be able to handle them after the presentation.
These weapons were used in Europe for hundreds of years to fight wars, duels and in personal combat. Jared will show the difference between historical usage and the romantic expressions commonly seen in film/tv in order to give a better understanding of how swordplay was an integral part of European history.
