Description
Johann Georg Pascha published a book on rapier in 1661, heavily influenced by Italian rapier (He later went on to publish another book based on Fabris' tradition). The book is divided into 16 lessons - 8 on fencing with thrusts and 8 on fencing with cuts. This class will introduce student's to Pascha's material and focus on the second lesson on thrusts which works on high and low engagements on the outside line and the tactical choices that arise from them. Students will work in pairs to practice each action, so full fencing gear will be required for this class.
