Hipster Longsword: An Intro to Vadi

Philippo di Vadi’s work “De Arte Gladiatoria Dimicandi” is an interesting source that has seen little use. Aside from being a tertiary resource for Fiorist clubs, the obscure focus of the occasional acolyte doing independent studying, and the rare exception-to-the-rule of a club’s focus on what rests within its pages, Vadi’s art has been glazed over for the most part. This class, dubbed, “Hipster Longsword” is intended to treat partakers to a sampling of the core principles, framework, and mechanics of Vadi’s system, while also giving a general comparison of the system’s inner-workings to contemporaries of its time.

Required equipment: Steel feder, mask with BoH protection, heavy gloves, and a good attitude!
