Founded in the year 2000, ‘Die Freifechter’ are one of Germany’s oldest historical fencing clubs. Their training focuses on the single-handed, single-edged sword from various historical eras. Systems trained include Messer according to the so-called ‘Glasgow Fechtbuch’ and Johannes Lecküchner’s magnum opus from 1482, Joachim Meyer’s Dussack, Napoleonic era sabre/backsword according to Taylor/Roworth’s ‘Art of Defence’ and late 19th century sabre according to Alfred Hutton’s ‘Cold Steel’. Wrestling and dagger from various German Medieval and Renaissance sources round out the curriculum.
