Montante (Greatsword) Study Group

The Maryland KDF montante group studies the use of the montante, or greatsword, pulling primarily from Iberian sources. 

The goal of this group is to explore biomechanics of large swords and fall in love with the greatsword.

This study group's schedule is Thursday nights at our normal time and space. 

If you would like to join, you must have completed the Maryland KdF Beginner's Longsword Class
Once you have done that, please contact the instructor, through the form below, to see if you can join a session. 

October 2020: Session 1 is already in progress, but a second session could be arranged pendingadditional interest.


 At minimum, participants should bring light fencing gloves - leather, rapier, or saber will do.
If you have a montante, please bring that as well.  Loaner gear is limited.

For a montante of your own, reputable manufacturers include Regenyei, Black Fencer, Balefire, and Arms and Armor.
Others will need to be inspected before they are allowed.
