Northern Italian Rapier & Dagger
July 26th – October 3rd, 2021
For students who are proficient in the postures, movements, and measures of the Northern Italian rapier style, adding a parrying dagger is a logical next step to both expand your knowledge and add a level of chaos that will help reinforce the system.
This 10 week class will introduce these concepts and look at tactically applying the combination of rapier and dagger together in combat. Using an incremental approach and structured drills, students will learn not only what to do with a dagger in their off-hands and how to do it, but we will dig down to uncover the ‘why’ – students will come away with a deeper understanding of tactics and in-combat decision-making.
