Borgosesia Historical Fencing Meeting

During the 1st and 2nf of September I will held an event here in my homeplace, Borgosesia (VC). The instructor Keith Farrell will keep two of the seminars during the event. For more info check the FB page at this link:
https://www.facebook.com/events/2114336612179459/permalink/2141665809446539/

Here you will find the description of the seminar, both in Italian and English.

Il seminario tenuto dall’Istruttore Keith Farrell:
Titolo: Le cinque parole del Maestro Liechtenauer: fare in modo che il legame funzioni correttamente nello sparring

Descrizione: Spesso quando ci impegniamo in sparring, alcune tecniche sembrano verificarsi abbastanza regolarmente, mentre altre azioni sembrano accadere molto più raramente (se non mai). Le tecniche dal (e nel) legamento sono più rare in sparring di quanto il nostro materiale di partenza (I trattati) suggerisca. Per aiutare a migliorare la nostra capacità di far funzionare correttamente il legame nel combattimento, possiamo utilizzare il quadro delle “Cinque parole” di Liechtenauer, queste, insieme alla cosiddetta Sprechfenster e al nostro senso di Fühlen, possono guidarci attraverso il legame per renderlo un parte funzionale ed efficace del nostro sparring.

Il seminario del giorno 1 Settembre getterà le basi di questa tematica, il secondo giorno vedrà i concetti applicati in situazioni più caotiche e libere.

Keith Farrell è uno dei capi istruttori l’Accademia delle arti storiche. Insegna HEMA professionalmente, spesso in occasione di eventi internazionali, insegna ed allena altri istruttori per renderli insegnanti migliori. La sua principale area di competenza è la scherma con la spada due mani secondo gli insegnamenti dei maestri del XV secolo nella tradizione di Liechtenauer. Tuttavia, si diletta anche a schermare con la broadsword scozzese, con la sciabola e una varietà di armi diverse! Nel suo Background annovera inoltre dieci anni di pratica del Karate tradizionale.
Keith è autore di numerosi libri per Fallen Rook Publishing, tra cui Scottish Broadsword e British Singlestick e la pluripremiata Guida allo studio della longsword tedesca AHA. Mantiene un blog attivo, pubblicando almeno una volta alla settimana. Ha inoltre pubblicato numerosi articoli e interviste su riviste e giornali.
È membro di HEMAC dal 2011 e ha ricevuto un HEMA Scholar Award come miglior istruttore per la ricerca nel 2013. Sebbene non sia una persona competitiva per natura, Keith ha vinto diverse medaglie nei tornei di scherma storica in tutto il mondo, e ha un un’alta valutazione nell’iniziativa HEMA Ratings (Rating mondiale per gli alteti di scherma storica).

Title: Liechtenauer’s Five Words: making the bind work properly in sparring

Description: Often when we engage in sparring, certain techniques seem to occur quite regularly, while other actions seem to happen only rarely, if at all. Techniques from (and in) the bind are more rare in sparring than our source material suggests they could be. To help improve our ability to make the bind work properly in sparring, we can look at the framework of Liechtenauer’s “Five Words” and how these, along with the Sprechfenster and our sense of Fühlen, can guide us through the bind to make it a functional and effective part of our sparring.

The seminar of the 1st September will lay the foundations of this theme, the second day will see the concepts applied in more chaotic and free situations.

Keith Farrell is one of the senior instructors for the Academy of Historical Arts. He teaches HEMA professionally, often at international events, and has an interest in coaching instructors to become better teachers. His main area of expertise is fencing with the two-handed longsword according to the teachings of 15th century masters in the Liechtenauer tradition. However, he also enjoys fencing with the Scottish basket-hilted broadsword, with the sabre, and with a variety of different swords!

Keith has authored several books for Fallen Rook Publishing, including Scottish Broadsword and British Singlestick and the award-winning AHA German Longsword Study Guide. He maintains an active blog, posting at least once a week, and has also had several articles and interviews published in a variety of magazines and journals.

He has been a member of HEMAC since 2011 and was awarded a HEMA Scholar Award for Best Instructor for research published in 2013. Although not a competitive person by nature, Keith has won several medals in historical fencing tournaments around the world, and has a strong rating in the HEMA Ratings initiative.
