    English longsword sword treatise?

    Hello

    looking for PDFs of the English longsword treatises

    Does anyone have an idea where they could be?

    I have no interest in learning English longsword. This is just more of a curiousity thing.

    I don't know about PDFs, but the texts from all three key treatises (plus interpretations/translations) are available at http://www.blackfalconschool.com/sources.shtml . There's also a forthcoming book on the subject from these guys - http://lessonsontheenglishlongsword.blogspot.com/ - and some YouTube demo clips.

    No PDF's though.

    You might ask around on this forum:
    http://pendant.forumotion.net/forum.htm

    The guy who runs it is currently writing a book specifically on English Longsword.

    I am not aware of any pdfs either.
    I have to say that interpreting that stuff is a bloody hard task.
    So kudos to them
