                That's false, shorter legs have easier range of movement compared to taller people.

    Nah, inside, anything longer than a relatively short arming sword is a huge inconvenience. This is one circumstance where katanas are better than most Euro swords.

    A hand-and-a-half sword possibly if you know how to/can "half-sword" effectively in tight quarters. I imagine the technique is a lot like using a rifle with a bayonet

        duh of course a rifle with a bayonet or just a rifle or just a pistol would be way better than a sword, but OP seems set on it being a two handed sword

        Roperas are heavier than normal "war" swords, they also were longer and where a "thugish" weapon for the Guapos/small time duelist of the time. They had all kinds of tricks, like the sheath of the sword being pinned with two metals pins so it could be unsheatad in a fluid motion.

    Realistically. Make a spear and have a shortsword or machete. Otherwise if it has the be a greatsword assume slashing as something that will be rarely done as opposed the chopping or stabbing and get something light and balanced.

    Absolutely, there's nothing scarier than some chubby retard banging against counters and furniture, trying and failing to get his massive fuck ass sword through the door frame, screaming like a girl.

    No. A great sword is technically a sword, but it functions like a spear and is used like an axe. Most great sword techniques use momentum to make follow-up strikes and movements with the blade. The reason why the lowest part of the blade on great swords is dull is mostly because the great sword is so bad up-close, that wielders need a way to choke up on the blade to even get a chance at close quarters fighting. If you watch great sword duels where one duelist does not use a great sword, they usually beat the great sword by closing the distance and getting close. You’re much better off going with a saber or arming sword, particularly one with a shorter-blade relative to its handle length. Just make sure that it can deliver impactful strikes reliably at a distance without large swings, and that it is small enough to maneuver around your house with. The ideal sword length for home defense is 2-3.5ft IMO.

      Precisely why mine is 2.87ft
      Granted, I'd recommend a saber over an arming sword for beginners, but I prefer the latter since it can be more versatile

    Greatsword? Probably not unless your house is really spacious. A shorter sword like this Duan Zhanmadao would wield a lot more quickly and dynamically in a small room and stairway.
