Give ‘Em the Stick: Fiore’s Bastoncello

A small but rather interesting section of Fiore’s work, the bastoncello, is shown in defense against attacks in various social situations. Beyond those four specific techniques in-and-of themselves, you can flip a few pages in the manuscript and start pulling out dagger plays for this or other improvised weapons. We’ll even answer the question of why somebody was wandering around with a big, ornate stick in their hands in the first place.
