Learn to love with one hand.

There is no greater pleasure in my mind than to fence well with the rapier. All combat arts and weapons have a unique and beautiful aspect to them that reaches deep into the soul and rewards. In this class the soul of the Valkyrie approach to rapier will be explained. We will cover the fundamentals of how to kill, how own space, how to move, how to with opposing blades, and how to practice with a rapier.

We will touch on elements of understanding from Marozzo, Capo Ferro, and Viedma's Destreza in order to find our own path to excellence with the ultimate sword.
