5th Dagger Master of Fiore || Patrick McCaffrey

Patrick McCaffrey || L’Arte Della Bellica || Kutztown, PA, USA

Weapons: Dagger/unarmed

Defense against the tax collector: Fiore’s dagger material is the largest single section of his work. Luckily he divided it into 9 individual masters, each dealing with a specific situation. The 5th Dagger Master deals with the situation of the collar grab, or as we have been calling it, the Tax Collector. This workshop looks at the Pictures and Text from Fiore’s Il Fior di Battiglia, and interprets it into a cooperative, and semi-cooperative set of exercises.
