Secondary Cuts for Meyer’s Dusack
October 6th – December 19th, 2021
In 1570, Joachim Meyer published his instructional manual for the dusack which was presented as the foundation for his practice with any single handed weapon. This class is designed for students that want to expand their understanding of Meyer’s combat for the dusack through the exploration of his secondary cuts.
These technical cuts offer the student additional learning opportunities including changing cutting lines, understanding when to cut and when to thrust your opponent, how to assess your opponent to deliver cuts along the appropriate cutting lines, and the relationship between distance and timing as it applies to striking an opponent. As this class is delivered via online/distance learning, our focus will be heavy on technique and solo drilling.
- A practice dusack or similar simulator
- A smart phone or other way to take videos of your progress
- An internet connection and a way to watch the videos, read the handouts, and attend the virtual study sessions
- A Pell or striking target can sometimes be helpful, but is not required.
- Enrollees will have access to the playlist of drills from our previous dusack class for reference.
Students are encouraged to read the period text, as we work through our weekly lessons. We are using the 1570 version of Meyer’s treatise – The Art of Combat, A German Martial Arts Treatise of 1570 by Joachim Meyer, Translated by Jeffrey L Forgeng
