Description
Based on the principles taught in the Intro to Fiore Di Liberi class, we will dive into Fiore's manuscript which describes a complex decision tree for dagger combat. These techniques survive in modern self defense and martial art techniques. This class will describe, demonstrate, and teach several branches of the decision tree exploring responses, counters and contra-counter moves. The student will gain an understanding of Fiore's instructional approach and the currently available reference material so that they may continue their studies outside of the class. Students may bring a dagger simulator and optional eye protection or the instructors will have a few extra available.
