Docciolini's single Sidesword reads like a how to guide on not dying in a sword fight. With the cuts thrusts and stances boiled down to simple principles, some nifty footwork, grapples and throws it's a great way to get into this wonderful weapon. Whilst the system works well with a rapier it definitely feels more comfortable with the shorter broader Sidesword blade.
Learn how to control your opponents blade, sneaky sfalsatas and how to grapple your opponent to submission or as a way to open them up for a well placed thrust.
This workshop is great for beginners of experienced sidesword/rapierists looking to try out a new system.
