Description
"This class focuses on the strong blade work of Capoferro and Giganti. Learn how a small difference in blade positioning can make a huge difference in control. From more effective counterpostures to how to gain your opponents sword, these universal concepts can be adapted to almost any style of rapier fighting. Request students have mask, gloves and sword although some loaner gear. Learn how to enter measure safely, strike your opponent with control and recover back out while remaining untouched."
