Kdf Curriculum Guides

These guides were originally written as reference resources for instructors, but they make for a reliable review and study guides for students as well. These will be updated as instructors update them, adding more drills and refining content. TSG's KdF three phase curriculum follows Liechtenauer's zettel.

KdF Phase 1- BeginnerS

The Phase 1 beginners class focuses on common fencing fundamentals.

KDF Phase 2 - ADVANCED BEGINNERS

Phase 2 of TSG's curriculum covers the core basics of Liechtenauer's system, binding, winding, and hengen. It covers the absetzen, hengen, and zornhau sections of the zettel. 

KdF Phase 3 (Longsword)

After completing the beginners classes, students can work on phase 3 in any of the Liechtenauer weapons, though currently most students focus on longsword. Phase 3 longsword covers the Vier Versetzen, the remaining of the five strikes and associated techniques. Phase 3 consists of a series of achievements which can be completed in any order at the student’s own pace.
