    Ouch. Good luck on that one.

    I think I'll have to watch a few more MEMAG videos, especially sparring ones, before I comment on them.

    Those (MEMAG) plays look a bit...nay, very much like FMA drills (at least the ones I came across in Inosanto Blend). They need a lot more practice then you'd think (from looking at them) to be applied in sparring, but once you got them down, they work.

    Here's the English version.

    I haven't heard anyone give a bad report of the video, though I haven't seen it myself.

    Just got a copy for my birthday. It's very good - Pacing is reasonable, gives the name of each exercise/technique (as well as any corresponding longsword techniques) and then shows it from a number of different angles as it is performed. My only complaint is that it doesn't show any free-play, though it does have demonstrations of test cutting.

    Hello
    The guys are Alex and Hans, I know them both personally and they are very nice chaps and good teachers. I personally agree with what their interpretation of the Messer in Lecküchner and they are aware that this manual in its “gross” version (Cgm. 582) contains proper fencing and demo fencing.

    That being said Messer and longsword are very very similar.
    In the VS (http://www.aemma.org/onlineResources...tents_body.htm ) there is a part where mater Andreas the long sword and Messer are explained together and where how the name of the guard/position are in fact the same thing with a different name. (http://www.aemma.org/onlineResources...uchandreas.htm)
