Meyer’s Longsword: A Grip Reversal from Wechsel

Meyer is well known for the variety of techniques he uses, however some of those techniques are a little unorthodox and often dismissed.

In this video we’ll look at a play from Wechsel (Change) which uses slashing from the right side, attacks with the flat, AND a reversal of hand position on the sword, making it the perfect storm of Meyer madness.

Interestingly these things come together to establish some extremely useful and valid fencing principles which we can apply to our day to day fencing, and so this is a worthwhile addition to the Meyer canon.
