Fiore Di Liberi's 1409 manuscript describes a complete combat system. His approach of "Do A", if your opponent "does B" then "Do C" or if your opponent "does D" then "do E" can be accurately represented as a modern decision tree. This class will build on the groundwork of basic techniques from the Intro to Fiore class and dive into the depths of the logic of the combat system by exploring two decision trees completely. Students are encouraged to bring an appropriate rattan, metal, or waster longsword. The instructor will have a few extra available for use.
