Our focus is on the interpretation and practice of the system of Johannes Lichtenauer via multiple authors. You can read about Lichtenauer on Wiktenauer.
The Liechtenauer tradition has its origins in the 1300s (possibly earlier) and was still being used as the basis for the principles of swordsmanship in the late 1600s. This is despite dramatic changes in weapon technology during this vast period of time.
Which weapons do we cover?
Longsword – a two handed sword
Messer/Dusack – a type of short choppy sidearm.
Rappier – a long bladed single handed cut and thrust sword
Rappier and companion weapon – cloak or dagger.
Sword/messer & buckler. A short sword and a small shield.
Occasionally we also work with the Dagger, a long, stiff stabbing weapon, and the two handed spear.
Smallsword is taught only privately. Please contact Stuart directly about these.

What’s on this Term?
At Baulkham Hills and Strathfield, we work with 1 or more weapons every lesson according to the concept that has been selected for the evening. This has been found to be superior to concentrating on one weapon at a time. You can do any drill with your weapon of choice.
An annual fee of $25 to cover insurance needs to be paid to Stoccata Central directly (If you attend multiple branches, you need only pay the membership fee once).
And then $150 per term school term or $30 per class on a casual basis.
Private lessons are offered on a pay what you want basis. Your first private lesson is free.
We train Thursday nights between 20:00 and 22:00.
