Spanish Rapier: A Practical Approach

Spanish swordsmanship, La Verdadera Destreza, has for too long been associated with a needless mystique. This class will remove much of the mystery and adhere to a totally pragmatic combative approach. All Spanish technical terminology will be dispensed with as much as possible. This will be a fast paced class dealing with this subject in plain English utilizing simple direct terminology. Although, dealing mostly with the single rapier, students should also bring daggers.


Equipment requirements: Rapiers & daggers, mask, jacket, gloves for both hands, groin protectors for men and breast protectors for women.
