    Cool cutting mechanics video

    YouTube- Half and Full Strikes with 16th Century Longsword

    The above video shows how to throw a "half cut" and then a "full cut'

    As you can tell by the video he is doing German Longsword. From an Italian view he is starting in a variation of Post Di Donna then cutting into Posta longa/Posta Frontale on the half cut. On the full cut he starts the same except he ends in Posta Di Coda longa. I just wanted to share what I thought was a cool video. I fnd interesting that Meyer has a guard that is similar to Posta di Donna.

    I hope everyone has/had a nice Thanksgiving

    Nice find! BTW the YouTube "blurb"/info box is quite extensive and informative for this clip, if you like the clip check out the blurb.

    As a non-longsword person things like this are fun to watch with an un-critical eye.

    All the Best,

    Hello mate

    I think it look very good. It does nicely show what you are talking about.

    About the zornhut, I agree with you. To start with the positions are just that position so you have a fair amount of latitude. As well there is nothing wrong with the using the most convenient of those position.

    The only point I would comment on is that you tend to let the sword goes too far back. I think you should try to finish it more at 90-120 degree like the pic than the full 180 coda longa.
    That would help with the stability and will promote the engagement of your hips and prevent the dip of your leading shoulder.
