Description
This class will build on the sword versus armored opponent techniques discussed in the previous class and expand into the use of the poleax. Weapons and armor appropriate to Fiore’s late 14th and early 15th Century period will be discussed. Fiore’s combat finesse will not be lost despite the brutality and energy of poleax combat. Plays will be examined for both short and long range fighting. Where appropriate, application to SCA combat will be discussed. Students will be provided with alternative materials to approximate swords and such.
