Workshop – Mark Lancaster

Fiore 1 – Mugger 0

 

Fiore dei Liberi had a very large system covering many weapon forms. Within his manuscript are several sections that cover defence against ‘street’ or ‘surprise’ attacks.

This workshop will look at the options for using improvised weapons and immediate response techniques against a dagger attack. Disarm an attacker using unarmed techniques, with a stick, a hat or use your scabbard if your sword isn’t drawn.

We may have time to show how to defeat a spear attacker by using two cudgels.
