FROM BATTLEFIELDS TO DUELLING: The evolution of Jogo do Pau
 

Lessons from a historical fencing system that resisted the test of time  

Finding it challenging to systematize how historical fencing techniques were influenced by opponents' traits???

Jogo do Pau's unbroken lineage of several centuries culminated in a fully structured curriculum, with its take on combat context being helpful as blueprint for HEMA's trainees & researchers.

This DVD covers how technique and tactics developed over time as an adaptation to a variety of combat circumstances, e.g. how outnumbered combat and duelling against opponents of different traits brought about specific adaptations regarding combatants' selection of:

  1. Starting position
  2. Parrying technique
  3. Defensive footwork
  4. Counter attack selection 
  5. Striking technique


PLUS, a top-down interpretation of the combat tactics that make up German longsword, intended to optimize tactical decision making amongst historical fencing combatants
