Before La Veradera Destreza became the official fencing system of Spain, another system held sway. Domingo Godinho’s text, the only known surviving complete text of his tradition contains information on the use of the Montante, single sword with companion weapons, techniques against treachery, and two swords. In this class, students will learn the solo forms or rules of using two swords to fend off multiple opponents in narrow alleyways, surrounded in a crossroads, and having to defend a woman. These drills provide a basis for improvisation in cutting patterns and coordinating two longer weapons in each hand and also introduce movement patterns and drills to develop one’s agility. Students will be provided with alternative materials to approximate swords. There will be no partner work, only solo drilling.
