Fiore's Dagger | Ken Dietiker

Ken Dietiker || Seven Swords Academy || Tacoma, WA

This workshop explores the grappling and close play of Fiore dei Liberi. From learning proper offensive attacks for providing non-compliant play, to effective and efficient defensive reaction, this class provides a dynamic overview of the nine masters (kings) of rondel dagger use. The three contexts are: empty hand against dagger, dagger against dagger, dagger against sword. Comparative analysis of the dagger plays to longsword play will also be explored.

Gear: Rondel daggers with an actual rondel, a synthetic longswords, mask and gloves. (Limited loaner weapons available)
