Johannes Leckhner was a priest living in Franconia during the 15th century. His surviving books contain a wealth of information on the German fencing style of this era. His system Although based on the Liechtenauer tradition, his system is a veritable treasure of martial instruction, ranging from bladework to disarms and wrestling techniques. Many of these techniques can be applied with the longsword as well and give a valuable additional data-point to the standard Liechtenauer repertoire. Beside techniques for earnest fighting, Leckhner also detailed antagonistic techniques that designed to electrify an audience at fencing events.
Part One of this series demonstrated the fundamental techniques of Johannes Leckhners teachings for fighting with the falchion-like long knife or messer. Building on that foundation, Part Two takes a direct and in-depth look into the Masters teachings. Each of the hidden strikes and the complete set of techniques that proceed from them, are presented in the same sequence as Master Leckhner did in his manual.
On this DVD, Alex and Hans show all techniques and combinations out of the six strikes
the Zornhau (the strike of wrath)
the Wecker (the rouser or rousing strike)
the Entrthau (the scaffolding strike)
the Gefer (the endangering strike)
the Zwingerhau (the enforcing strike)
the Winker (the waver or waving strike)
