Description
Fiore presented a complete combat system in 1409 which included a consistent approach including grappling, dagger, sword, spear, and mounted combat. It has application to all SCA fighting styles. The section on fighting with a sword in one hand is one of the shortest in the manual consisting of just 13 plates. This class will, as time permits, examine each of the plates with the translated text and discuss the plays described in this section. The presentation will include slides of the plates and translation, video of some of the plays, and live demonstrations of variations. Discussion will include how to apply Fiore's techniques to SCA combat rule sets.
