In Highland Knife Fighting, Christopher Thompson examines a number of Scottish historical and oral sources to document the role of the knife in Gaelic society.

Highland Martial Culture is your chance to find out more about the rich cultural heritage associated with the practice of Highland weapons.

Highland Broadsword instructs you in the essentials of Highland swordsmanship – including stances, grips, footwork and blade actions – as well as disarm maneuvers and advanced fighting techniques.

See the descriptions of the individual volumes for more details. This set is not available to wholesalers.
Christopher Thompson is the author of Lannaireachd: Gaelic Swordsmanship, a training manual on the use of the Highland broadsword. A resident of Portland, Maine, Thompson is the president of the Cateran Society, a national organization that promotes historical fencing with Highland weapons.

In 2000, Louis Pastore began researching martial arts that were practiced throughout Scotland and Europe. In 2004 he was accepted as a pupil of John Wesencraft, the only surviving teacher of the Highland dirk dance, as taught to Tom Flett in the 1950s.
