Description
Based on the principles taught in the Fiore Di Liberi Overview 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 two branches of the decision tree exploring the depth of responses, counters and contra-counter moves. These will be different plays than were taught in our earlier Atlantian Hugs classes. 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. The Atlantian Hugs class from previous Universities is not a required prerequisite.
