Description
Fiore di Liberi describes a system of combat for the late 1300s. Published in 1409, his manuscripts discuss a consistent set of combat principles which he applies to wrestling, dagger, swords, axes and spears. It has application to armored, rapier, cut and thrust, and even mounted combat within the SCA. This course will provide a quick introduction to Fiore's system using daggers and longswords and introduce basic terminology, guards, and techniques for learning the system. Current Fiore reference material will be discussed and some slow, unarmored, combat moves will be demonstrated. Students are encouraged to bring an appropriate rattan, metal, or waster longsword. The instructor will have a few extra available for use.
