    Read The Swordsman's Companion ( The Swordsman's Companion) [PDF DOWNLOAD] ó Guy Windsor Guy Windsor ´ 7 Read & Download Right smack in the introduction Mr. Windsor justifies every further second of time you will spend reading and learning from the rest of this book. He discusses the three types of swordsman, the competitior, the technician, and the spiritualist. He's taught long enough to know how these types of students progress. That knowledge alone is worth the price of admission.

Largely superceded byThe Medieval Longsword which came out in 2014 but it is unsurpassed as a general guide to how and why you should train swordsmanshi.
