Welcome to the Atlanta Freifechter
We are an historical fencing class based in mid-town Atlanta. Our fencing source lies within the German Fencing tradition. Joachim Meyer was concerned with passing on the traditions of old to the newer generations and prepare the fencers of his day for the trials and tribulations of his time. In this there are some refinements and distinctions in his Longsword compared to those that came before him. These include a lesser influence on the thrust, and more reliance on the flat and short edges of the Longsword. Along with the Longsword, Joachim Meyer wrote about the Dussack, Sidesword/Rapier, Dagger, Halbert and Staff.
