High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The sica was a sword in Ancient Rome. It was the weapon of choice used by a gladiator called Thraex or "Thracian". It was originally depicted as a curved sword, (see the Zliten mosaic as well as numerous oil lamps) with a blade about 16-18 inches long (40 - 45 cm). The later sica blade (from late in the 1st century AD) had a sharp,almost 45 degree, bend in it. While early sicas may have been single edged, the later bent sicas were apparently double edged. The distinctive shape was designed to get around the sides of an opponent's shield, and stab or slash them in the back. Since the traex gladiator's usual opponent was the Scutum (large shield) carrying myrmillo gladiator, such a weapon as the sica was necessary to make the duel more even and exciting.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Waki- gamae ( ?), sometimes shortened to waki, is one of the five stances in kendo: j dan, ch dan, gedan, and hass . and waki. Waki-gamae is a stance involving the swordsman hiding the length of ones own blade behind their body only exposing the pommel to the opponent. This stance was common when there was no standard length of sword and was often used as a deterrent to any opponents who did not know the range of the sword being hidden and could be used as a sort of bluff technique. It also serves to conceal the orientation of the blade to one''s opponent, as to give him no hint about your own intention for the next attack.

Qiang (spear)

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Qiang is the Chinese term for spear. Due to its relative ease of manufacture, the spear in many variations was ubiquitous on the pre-modern Chinese battlefield. It is known as one of the four major weapons, along with the Gun (staff), Dao (sabre), and the Jian (sword), called in this group "The King of Weapons". When the spear is moving quickly, the addition of the tassel aids in blurring the vision of the opponent so that it is more difficult for them to grab the shaft of spear behind the head or tip. The tassel also served another purpose, to stop the flow of blood from the blade getting to the wooden shaft (the blood would make it slippery, or sticky when dried).

The Cavalier Club
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The year is 1618 and the beginning of the brutal Thirty Years' War. Lieutenant Jack Channing's life is about to be immutably altered by two events. He falls in love with a beautiful countess and witnesses an attempt on the Polish King Sigismund's life. News reaches the court that assassination attempts on Catholic monarchs have occurred elsewhere in Europe and Jack is charged with the responsibility of finding and crushing the perpetrators - murderers that became known as the Green-Scarf Fraternity. Mixing real historical events with fictional retelling, The Cavalier Club is a richly detailed, impeccably researched story of adventure, bravery and love set during one of Europe's longest and most destructive conflicts. As the shadowy figures advanced, Jack brandished his rapier and stepped forward, away from his mount. The two cavaliers moved cautiously towards him, separated by the fountain ... As the distance closed between them, he feinted with rapid, circular sweeps, pushing the dark figure back. His faceless opponent withdrew his dagger and lunged with his sword. Jack turned the blade aside with an open, gloved palm and countered, his thrust diverted by the man's dagger. They took a step back from each other and slowly circled a few cautious steps. Avoiding his adversary's jab, Jack countered with an immediate plunge, stabbing at the shoulder ... Jack briefly glanced at the wounded swordsman; there was no movement.
