Scottish Broadsword and British Singlestick (paperback & e-book)

Starting at: £32.50

This combined package gives a discount on the price of purchasing both the paperback (RRP 25) and the e-book (RRP 15). If you are the sort of person who likes to have a real printed copy of a book to hold in your hands, but also enjoy the accessibility and portability of electronic books, then this package will make it easier for you to buy both types of book.

This book is an introduction to the history, use and context of the Scottish basket-hilted broadsword. As part of the Academy of Historical Arts Study Guide series, it is intended to serve as a study guide for practitioners of historical fencing who work with this weapon, or who would like to begin learning its style. Instructors will also find it helpful as it provides plenty of contextual information to use for illustrating lessons, and anecdotes to help students engage with the system.

Contained within is all the information required for self-study of two fascinating disciplines, Scottish broadsword and British singlestick, with salient points for study for people who do not have the luxury of regular access to a teacher. For practitioners who do receive regular tuition, this book will not replace input from your teacher, but will instead supplement it and offer a greater awareness and understanding of the context of the art that you study.

Keith Farrell is one of the senior instructors for the Academy of Historical Arts, based in Scotland. He teaches HEMA professionally, often at international events, and has an interest in coaching instructors to become better teachers.
