Fiore di Liberi describes a system of combat for the late 1300s. Published in 1409, his manuscripts discuss a consistent set of combat principles which he applies to wrestling, dagger, swords, axes and spears. It has application to armored, rapier, cut and thrust, and even mounted combat within the SCA. This course will examine the core skills and techniques that span the entire system and discuss approaches to applying those skills to SCA combat forms. Representative plays from the dagger, longsword and combat-in-armor sections will be examined for commonalities - both mental and physical. Techniques to apply and drill these commonalities for use on an SCA combat field will be examined.
