Leveraging Your Assets: Principles of Leverage in Armed and Unarmed Combat
The basic Physics principles of the fulcrum and lever have been applied in combat since people first began to fight. Throughout the centuries, these basic principles have been explored, tested, fine-tuned, and further developed to a point where sophisticated systems have independently evolved in every corner of the world. This course will explore both the known and not-so-known combative applications that can be derived through the use of basic physics.
Fiore Survived Six Armed Combats, Would You?
This class will focus on Fiore dei Liberi’s system. Participants will examine the proper order and action of the fight through an examination of his book “Fior di Bataglia.” The treatise provides a consistent system of self-defense with principles that can be used unarmed, or with any weapon that may be at hand.
Spanish Rapier vs Italian Rapier
This class will cover some universal concepts as they are applied with the rapier which are applicable to either school of fencing. Moreover we will cover how some of these concepts are uniquely applied within each system using specific techniques typical of each school against the other respectively. The class will culminate in how to use each school effectively against the other.
