    DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!! This book is not only old, which can therefore explain why some of its techniques are just plain wrongly interpreted, but the author does not spar. I repeat; the author of this book sees no value in sparring; that is - testing his techniques against a resisting opponent. That is the core of every bullshido martial art, they don’t test against resisting opponents. With the safety gear you can get for HEMA; there is no reason to not spar. And if you don’t; then make that very clear if you decide to write a book about a marital art. As a sword and buckler enthusiast who was looking for new books and didn’t check what they were about before buying; this book is useless for me. (By this I mean it shows me nothing new, except techniques that are wrong, and which you know are wrong, if you ever test them in sparring) While some of the shit he shows is correct and will help a newbie, you will also need to skip a lot of the wrong interpretations, and newbies don’t know... More > what that is, so either this book will hurt you, in which case avoid, Or you will allready know enough sword and buckler to see what shit this is, in which case you don’t need it. So in every case this book is worthless. Check out his videos on YouTube if you think I’m just taking shit, AND take into consideration; the videos are not sparring, they don’t do that, NO! They are the best they can show the techniques. I’ll use this for toilet paper and to show others how NOT to do things.< Less

    As I grow in the art, more of what Hugh says becomes apparent as wisdom. This is a fine work and is a must to serious students of sword & buckler.

    "Sword & Buckler book review" Overall a very good guide to Medieval S&B fighting. Includes historical details, easy to follow tecniques and plays (for those learned in KdF), instructions for a cheap and easy pell and a guide for solo practice. -J Driskill
