  • Pyrobaconstudios

    One of these days i need to get a dedicated training room as every time i get the random urge to practice a certain technique i realize it's either night time or the weather is entirely too awful for me to bother.

  • Padraic Smith

    My god. I've always had massive forearms next to my bacon strip biceps and finally I've found it actually a GOOD thing. Thank you Matt, you've made my day!

  • Gott Hammer

    Thanks for this video. Looking forward to more. :DSome questions:- do you have a recommended range of motion for this drill? should it be limited? or as far as the wrist can move the tip of the sword down? I'm kinda worried about hyper-extending. I've been doing something similar (sword 'wiggling'), I guess I picked it up from when I was still actively practicing arnis/escrima, but I use a hardwood (kamagong/ironwood) bokken.- re: the thumb up/sabre grip: been trying it (primarily 'cause of your videos :P ), but I guess the bokken I use makes it a bit difficult (?). is there any advantage/disadvantage to that grip?for arnis/escrima (the 3 or so styles I practiced) kinda focused on the 'hammer grip' (I even recall being taught against using the the thumb up grip, but I've forgotten why), and for kendo, there was the emphasis on using the small and ring finger to grip the bokken/shinai (I recall a short exercise w/ swinging, one-handed, w/ only those two fingers, and w/ the other 3 extended); and for taijijian, the index and middle finger (and thumb)...they all work for each, I guess, but I don't recall practicing anything w/ thumb up (did a little dao/taiji sabre, w/ a wooden practice dao, but I think that was also a hammer grip)

  • molluskwithclothes

  • Michael Romero

  • manpreet kaur

    thank you sirits was great learning video

  • angelowl89

    I really appreciate this video. Having one hour single trip to the fencing school and me being focused on one-handed fencing. This gives my ridonkilously heavy french cavalry sabre replica a proper purpose too. Thanks!

  • gus green

    thank you for the videos. I'm in the U.S. and around where I'm at there are no schools or clubs for this, but it's something I have always wanted to learn.

  • iTzNoxy

    Love your videos! Can you do one where you demonstrate all of the sabre numbered cuts and related info? I have a long-sword and am learning on my own time but I am interested in adapting sabre techniques as well. Thanks!

  • hetero sapien

    6:18 the fingering grip hehehhehehehehehhe.

  • fathimath adheeba

    i am here because of percy jackson

  • Gwrhyr Gwalstawt

    Does the same kind of training apply for Migration Period swords?

  • Fancy_ Pikachu

    thank you so much!!! now i can kill my father!!!! >3

  • RottenRroses

    My honor got gravely insulted the other day, so I wonder, how does one go about challenging people to a duel these days? Are there any formalities one has to consider? Is it even leagal to fight a duel, possibly resulting in the death of one of the participants? Both parties would agree to the terms of the duel, of course. Swords are not as common as they used to be. Thank you.

  • Dominator046

    I came back to this looking to advise some training to someone who typically does rapier but wants to improve other facets of their swordplay. I was in the office and trying to watch this with the captions and no audio.Oh my goodness, my sides. IT'S HILARIOUS.

  • PJ McDaid

    I live in Ireland and there are no HEMA clubs anywhere near me and the most I have is a cheap 9 euro (would have been 10 if I had it painted) short wooden sword I got from a stall outside Whitewater shopping centre but hey, better than nothing.I do a bit of "solo training" but it certainly wasn't structured. Also, since the whole thing is made of wood and it's fairly light, would you say it'd be sufficient for training anyway? Or would I want something a bit heavier?Thanks for this, I'm definitely gonna find it helpful if I can eventually get into swordsmanship.

  • Ulung Prabowo

    Why there is no medieval one handed sword techniques or sparring appeared in youtube? Mostly always use dagger and buckler.

  • Marc Ritz

    I have been exercising my forearm since I was 13, I am ready!

  • Derpy

    easy to do while using a hammering for the beginning stuff

  • Alex V4

    If anyone is in texarkana would they be interested in teaching me? Also some start a fn HEMA club in texarkana.

  • Raptor Badger

    Im just here so i can get better at hitting my friends with a foam sword.

  • madworldfan123

    Would this training work with a machete?

  • AzurizWorld

    I'm a kid... oh well!

  • A Journey Inside A Dream

    Do you have to switch arms if you want to get both arms into shape, though it wouldn't really be necessary to?

  • Daniel Wiecheć

    Can you made more solo training advice for one handed swords?

  • Mary Tudor - O'Halloran

    great videos! this is very helpful thank you for the videos on youtube!

  • PhosphenesPeridot

    i read your title as Solas (the Elf from Dragon Age 3) sword training and thought you were cosplaying him teaching to use a sword....

  • Twiggyay

    Will have to try this with my bastard sword. Gotta get them forearm gains.

  • SwagCannon

    I just smashed my mom's TV...

  • Awkward-To-Awesome

    I'm a drummer so this is no new exercise for me. I just have poor muscle mass!

  • Natey

    where do you get your swords?

  • Dead one

    That's the saddest cactus I've ever seen....

  • Kevin Hughes

    thank you for making this, I've just gotten my first sword and I can't join a club yet, but I want to start training

  • BobbyNiggs

    Also, when ever I'm freaking out after using a lot of drugs your videos always calm me down, thanx man ;P

  • OneWeeb

    You know you watched too much Sao if you're here

  • sun Tao

    Thanx for a good lesson:)

  • Lightwaves The Great

    I personally use a ceremony sword just for safety, its quite light and not sharp at all

  • Megumin

    When you watch too much anime and played too much mmorpgs

  • Sir.Alex

    I'm a 14 year old, and I want to practice my edge alignment. But of course, I cannot own a sharp sword. The best way I have now, is listening to the sound my sword makes when I swing it. Any ideas?

  • dahwriter

    I too am known to every so often sit on the couch and waggle my sword.What?

  • Cathy E.

    What is a good weight to start with? Got a wooden sword but it is very light. (I have 0 condition in my forearm btw)

  • Danny Mac

    What about lefties? should I train right handed or try to mirror everything but with my left hand?

  • Chris stars

    to be honest I am 10 and a have a toy sword I made and I really want to learn to sword   fight  with my friends

  • Name Less

    A man with a sword has more heart than a man with a gun.

  • Lightwaves The Great

    "atract the police"

  • Scipi

    Incidentally, I have an old bokken that's been lying around for several years. It's light (and I doubt its authenticity) but it should be good enough to start with as I save for an actual sword.

  • Jt T

    Wouldn't it improve hit/slash strength if one used a 2-3lb. sledge to do the same motions?

  • martijn prevoo

    Hallo scholagladiatoria is archery good for the mussels for swordfighting.

  • MLP Lover

    Can it be a paper sword?

  • epic_fail

    I read somewhere that in colonial America, the English and Scottish who were here adapted broadsword and backsword techniques to the American Indian tomahawk(due to swords being lost, not having enough to go around or what have you). My questions are: 1) Do you think this is reasonable? And 2) Whenever I practice that exercise with my tomahawk I notice I end up white-knuckling my fingers since tomahawks don't have grips, and, much like escrima sticks are easy for beginners to accidentally turn into projectile weapons. Does this happen with sabre's as well? In other words, do your finders and thumb get as good a workout as your forearm when practicing one-handed sword exercises?

  • Micke

    you could hammer nails in to wood also maybe

  • Dominic Adams

    do you ever warm up before you pick up the sword? Anything you can recommend for avoiding injury? Thanks for the videos!

  • Damir Pryce

    I'm trying to learn how to use my German great sword, however I can't seem to find any clubs or courses around where I live to I don't know what to do. Do you have any suggestions?

  • ConnorJaneu

    I've just gotten a Union Cavalry sabre, and it is extremely heavy, I'm not sure if that is the way it is supposed to be weighted, because he doesn't seem to have any trouble with the one in the video. If anyone could tell me, please do.
