Docciolini published his manual in 1601, and serves as a transitional manual between the 16th c. sidesword manuals in the Bolognese tradition and the post-1600 rapier manuals of Capoferro, Fabris, etc. In this class, Ishmael and Nicolo will review the most interesting points Docciolini makes in his manual, as well as lead students through the central footwork, guards, and plays of Doccioli’s single sword section. If there is sufficient interest, Ishmael and Nicolo are available after the class ends to continue discussing Docciolini’s guards and plays for the rapier & dagger, cloak, buckler, case, and other weapons forms.
This class will not be recorded.
