Needless to say I
very impressed Which lead me to uestion the approach to some of my previous teachingsAlmost after the event I picked up a copy of the author s s Companion another first class manual for beginners however waited what seemed like an eternity the Swordsman s Companion As it was sold out at the timeHaving come recently back in stock and receiving the manual I was not disappointed As with his other work I have found both manuals to be very thorough and detailed I find the recommended exorcises and incorporation of fitness extremely valuable Most importantly though I have enjoyed the objective based approach and candid writing styles Compared to other training manuals I have read I would say Mr WIndsor s are the best available in the market Or at the very least appeals the most to my own personal beliefs and tastesI would strongly recommend this work for any one who does not only want best in class knowledge of working swordsmanship however people who also want to develop the physical ability to properly and effectively execute Mr Windsor s interpretations In the past I have paid drastically for less valuable information I have also paid drastically less for less valuable information For the price of this manual I consider it a must have for any swordsman As with most things there is always a but This book s but is that the images are of poor uality in the Kindle version regardless of the viewing device as I have the Kindle app on my smartphone tablet and a desktop PC that is a 3 month old graphical design and gaming powerhouse rig The images do not allow the reader to zoom in and visually interpret what the author is describingOther than the issue regarding the images the book is exactly what I was anticipating in an instruction manual for the novice swordsman with terminology a foundation in its history exercises advice and detailed instruction It was a very interesting book It discusses a great deal about sword fighting theory Also it introduces one to common terms and some simple techniues You will not learn to sword fight with this book Yet it will certainly point you in the right direction for learning It s a good place to start most especially if you are new to martial arts of any kind or swordsmanship A helpful honest guide that i found to be well written and practical This is definitely a great book to use as a reference as you advance in the art Excellent book by a leading expert As always the frustrating thing is that if you do not have the face to face interaction with a real life instructor this book is not going to help you very much as a swordsman Really difficult to find good instructors in the UK unless you live in London If you cant find someone to teach you don t buy this book This book is a great reference. Set drills and clear descriptions this book has been the standard work on the subject since it first came out in 2004 As a technical manual it has been.
