I Don’t Mean to Disarm You – Wait, Yes I Do!

There is a very special feeling that every longsword fencer gets when they successfully disarm their opponent. In this workshop, students will look at the different disarms that are presented by Fiore in the Getty manuscript. Participants will get the chance to break down and look at the core motions and physics that allow each of these disarms to be performed with ease. As students become comfortable with these disarms, they shall then see that, as Fiore says: “I’m not lying when I say that I can now strike you to my heart’s content.”

Required equipment: Longsword, leather gloves (if desired)
