About the Instructor

Ben Smith, the instructor of the Hilt and Cross, specializes in teaching the longsword style of Sigmund Ringeck. Ringeck’s style, recorded in several known versions, gives us one of the most complete interpretations of the fighting style developed by Johannes Liechtenauer, founder of the Society of Liechtenauer. Famous for its efficient and aggressive underlying strategies, their style became one of the most well known longsword styles in their day, and in the modern day.

Come Practice with Us
