Mike Cartier talked a bit about Meyer's travels. Very interesting and we are eager to learn more.
Here's something else to note.
So, the Phoenix Society has worked pretty hard with...
Italian Rapier (Giganti and Fabris in particular with side jaunts)
And dabbled with (based on student/instructor interest)
Sword and Buckler
There is a lot of cross-over. Not identical, but its the little things.
So, Fiore for example has a technique where one feints with a cut, then half-swords. The response is to half-sword right back into them.
Oh no you didn' - I got a crown!
And in Capo Ferro rapier, 200 years later, has a similar technique.
A pass with using both hands on the rapier. One of the responses is to reply in kind. (Paraphrasing of course.)
Elsewhere I went on at length to show how slipping the leg to avoid a low attack and reply with a high can be seen in many systems. Longsword, saber, rapier!
Thus, one of the things I'm curious to find in Meyer rappier is what transfers over very well to what I've already learned and what does not. Thus far, the use of the pass as a technique for going to the close, but not other movement is 'new' to me. But the guard Eisenport is akin to 3rd in rapier, while ox on the right, point forward, is similar to a 1st variation. Not identical of course, but I see patterns. Always excited by that! In the case of Fiore for example, I think it is very neat that a technique from that time-period exists, in some form or another in later works.
One of our cousin groups we cross-train with might be getting into Marazzo side-sword. If so, it could be a good way to link up and make comparisons and contrasting notes! Good stuff and we'll be sure to report back more.
