Scottish sword and buckler was not a system in its own right, but a variation on the art of the broadsword. Once a swordsman understood the art of the single broadsword sufficiently, his broadsword master would give him a few tips about what to do with a buckler. Our method is based on the advice of Donald McBane (1728) and Archibald MacGregor (1791).

So are you using a dueling or battlefield mindset here?

More like a battlefield mindset than a dueling mindset, as we weren't stopping the action after a touch but continuing until a "kill."

Sorry for the aside, but what is the music in the first video?
