Rapier Lesson July 15, 2009

by Kevin | July 17th, 2009

This is a reprise of the lesson from July 8 on the outside line. Attacks to the outside line don’t close necessarily here, ala Fabris.  am having him work with counterattacks that close the outside line, however. We also started introducing dagger only parries, something he will need if he starts fencing in the SCA…
