THE WARS OF THE ROSES 1455-1487
The Battle Of Bosworth Field 1485,
The brutal style of the medieval long sword is one of power and practical efficiency,
but one with an artistry all its own.
Methodical and practical methods for skillfully using the weapon were practiced
for centuries and have survived in manuals from the era.
For the medieval long sword there are essentially 14 recognizable and legitimate fighting postures.
They are all guards or "wards" from which to launch an attack or to parry.
There were 5 major stances or guards which were the most popular,
the others were considered "secondary" guards or transitional stances ,
which were primarily parry positions used either for recovery to another guard or for a particular attack or parry.
YORK-21 Knight is sculpted in one of the 5 primary positions, using the “Hanging Right Guard”.
