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.
