Description
A discussion of the Old Style swordsmanship of the Iberian peninsula, the weapons, theory, and its relationship with the ""true"" style of 'La Verdadera Destreza'. We will go over modern scholarship and where things stand within the community regarding the translation and recreation of this art, as well as a discussion of Domingo Luis Godinho's 1599 manuscript, ""Arte de Esgrima"". This class will lay out the scholarly foundations for the class on Godinho's solo sword.
