Description

The anonymous online article ‘Living by the sword’ appears in volume 4 of the Leatherwood Online – Tasmania’s Journal of Discovery website and was posted in June/July 2007. It is about professional swordsman Stephen Hand of Hobart, Tasmania. Stephen teaches writes about, performs, and choreographs medieval and Elizabethan sword fighting. His technique is based on the late sixteenth-century works by Italian rapier master
Vincentio Saviolo and the Englishman George Silver who favoured a more traditional backsword. Stephen helped establish the Stocatta School of Defence in Sydney in 1998 and a Hobart branch in 2004, and also teaches adult education classes.
