Meyer's Rappier Techniques

Postby Robert R. » Tue Sep 10, 2013 8:50 am

I've finished my year exploration of Meyer's Rappier techniques. These videos are my interpretation of what Meyer uses to present his various cuts and thrusts. Questions, comments, critiques are welcome:

I agree.

I will share an important formula: No talking == a video that I will watch.

I like that you do these videos in a very attractive environment too; wooden floors and poofy pants!

I don't study Meyer or Rappier, but I really like these videos.

Hey Robert, thanks for your videos. I ran into them a few months ago and they really motivated me to get back into Meyer Rappier. Great stuff!

Thank you for the props everyone.

If there are some other Meyer Rappierists out there who have differing interpretations, I'd like to hear/see them, and know the reasons for why they differ from what I've presented. Thanks!

As soon as we get some rappiers, my school will be hitting this next.
