Re: New To HEMA

Considering this thread is already a month old, it's entirely possible that you have already found the answers you seek, however, since there are yet any replies here, I will give mine.

I myself am still fairly new to the world of HEMA, having only started 6 months ago, but I'd like to think I at least have a decent working knowledge of the subject. As for literature, should have pretty much everything you need for whichever master you choose. On the subject of Fiore vs Leichtenauer, it really depends on your preference, I personally prefer Italian longsword, so I Started with Fiore and have devoted most of my studies to the same, but if you prefer German techniques, then the obvious choice for you would be Leichtenauer.
