Anthony's breakdown of the technical aspects of the techniques applied to the broadsword was clearly and precisely presented both in explanation and demonstration.... I highly recommend the purchase of this video as a valuable reference video and contribution to one's fencing library" -- Bob Anderson - Swordmaster and Actor Action Coordinator, The Princess Bride, The Mask of Zorro, First Knight, Lord of the Rings

"Anthony De Longis has produced another superior instructional video. Based on progressive learning, and underscored by a desire for safety at all times, Broadsword for Stage and Screen: The De Longis Method, leads the theatrical fencer or historical recreator into a knowledge-based use of the broadsword. As always, the De Longis method is clear, clean, and easily grasped, blending creativity and proficiency simultaneously. This video is another must for anyone interested in historically-flavored sword fighting. As the author of The Art and Science of Fencing, The Inner Game of Fencing, and The Encyclopedia of the Sword, and the editor of Fencers Quarterly Magazine, I recommend it highly." -- Nick Evangelista, author of The Encyclopedia of the Sword and The Art and Science of Fencing
