Capoferro’s Rapier – 11th June till September
Proponents of Italian fencing rejoice! Discover how to ‘find’ your opponent’s sword, perform a ‘butchering’, and the deadly simplicity of the ‘one true guard’.
Starting on the June 11th, Roger and Ange will be teaching an interpretation of Capoferro’s Rapier. Please bring your rapier if you have one. If you don’t have one we will be using the club’s longswords as an acceptable alternative. After 8 weeks of Capoferro you will have quads of steel and perhaps be able to reliably hit a postage stamp on a wall with your point.
The tournament is not far away now and we will be using sparring time to train judges. You will also have plenty of opportunities to improve your sparring skills at the same time. All sparring will be done with judges so members can get used to judging and also get used to having bouts judged.
