Sword Fighting Books and Combat Books

At first, a book on combat techniques might seem slightly odd. After all, lessons learned from a book cannot compete with battle tested experience earned in the thick of combat. But in all reality, reading about a martial art or weapon style is a fantastic way to begin to familiarize oneself with the rigors and techniques. Combining what is learned from a book with physical practice and effort is a fantastic way to learn a new skill. Thus, Dark Knight Armoury offers a number of sword fighting and combat books! In this section, any avid fan of medieval combat can find a book that details any number of styles of combat. Many of these books offer detailed explanations and vivid pictures that demonstrate several techniques that have been firmly rooted in medieval martial arts for centuries. And not all of the books deal with swords, either. There are combat books on pole weapons, daggers, and tomahawks, as well as books detailing the use of various styles of swords, including the long sword and the cut and thrust sword. If you enjoy medieval history and just want to read about the way that knights fought, then these sword fighting and combat books are an excellent resource. If you are actually learning how to fight like a real medieval warrior, then these books are sure to offer a solid foundation upon which skill and mastery can be built, provided that reading is balanced with practice and experience.

"I just wanted to express my gratitude towards Alecia in your customer service department. I had ordered something that was out of stock and she gave me several options that I may be interested in and also suggested ordering another size. I asked her some questions regarding the other size and she was quick to respond (within hours!) and had a great attitude. She was quick to respond and because of her great customer service I would gladly recommend this company for ordering products and I will also continue to order products. Even though I didn't get what I initially ordered I believe the different size will work just as well."
