Sword Fighting From Our Past
We have many left overs from our sword fighting past. Here are just a few:
- A man buttons his coat left over right leaving his right hand free to draw his sword.
- We shake hands to show we are not armed
- A gentleman escorts a lady by the right arm because his sword hangs on his left.
- With the touch of a sword a man is knighted.
- With the breaking of his sword a man is disgraced.
