Description
Fiore's 1409 manual describes a complete combat system starting with grappling and moving on to dagger, baton, one-handed sword, two-handed sword, spear, and mounted combat. This class discusses half of his two-handed sword plays: those at long (out of grappling) range called Largo. The plates and translated text will be presented and discussed with short videos illustrating the instructor's take on some of the plays. Many of these plays have application with minimal adaptation to SCA Armored, Rapier, and Cut and Thrust combat. This class will not be recorded, but the slides and short videos presented will be available at http://learnfiore.org .
