Day 13 zweihänder training my instructor told me to begin practicing meyer's square. this video has two parts.. one is a meyer's square (a very imperfect one i must say... 😅) and the other is just some experiment trying to do some false manouver that continue as a lower sweeping strike. #hema #historicaleuropeanmartialarts #martialarts #greatsword #zweihänder #sword #swordmanship #practice #lgv30plus

Iaidō -- it is an old style swordsmanship that this year celebrates its 290th anniversary of the death of the founder tsuji gettan sukemochi. paul tzirides teaches mugai-ryū discipline of iaidō. “[iaidō] is traditional swordsmanship, so we practice kata over and over and over. it is less of a contemporary evolution and more rooted in traditional practice. iaido is drawing and cutting in one motion, cutting down your opponent, and returning the sword to its home in your scabbard using economical and efficient movement”, explains tzirides. "over a decade ago, i originally wanted to study aikidō; however, i also had a passing interest in swords and things like that...and learned about an iaidō class,” says tzirides, “i met my sensei and a couple other students at a dojo then and had lunch with them and it was very personable so i decided this was something i wanted to do and it’s 15 years later now,” continues tzirides, “and today, i feel so honored to be a part of it, passing on the tradition and teaching the great art of iaidō. it’s like i’m a single water drop in a big river. the river i belong" there are 20 basic techniques that are concentrated on in mugai-ryū iaidō, 10 sitting and 10 standing. sitting techniques while unpractical in fighting situations only exist because they are practiced privately not against an opponent. tzirides uplifts his sword in one of the most traditional mugai-ryū sitting styles. #theuplifted

Memandang runtuh dunia fana (seeing the world torn apart) i was editing my previous post when i noticed there's a particular movement that when edited it will give japanese anime feel. the title "memandang runtuh dunia fana" came from a chinese wuxia comic where one character strike his opponenet with his style aforementioned. #hema #historicaleuropeanmartialarts #martialarts #sword #swordmanship #greatsword #zweihänder #photoediting #animefeels #anime #experiment #lgv30plus

Onna-bugeisha (女武芸者, "female martial artist") was a type of female warrior belonging to the japanese nobility. many women engaged in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. they were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. significant icons such as tomoe gozen, nakano takeko, and hōjō masako are famous examples of onna-bugeisha. #kendo #women #swordmanship #aikido #samurai #martialarts #bushi #bushido
