This discipline involves studying Capo Ferro's "Gran Simulacro dell'Arte e dell'Uso della Scherma" fencing manual to interpret how to fight using a rapier as they would in 17th-century Italy.

What to Expect

This is an on-going discipline and has no "beginner's section" - however, the basics are easy to pick up! Every week we continue through different plays to make with the rapier on its own, swiftly followed by using both the rapier and dagger in combination!
