If you have two hands, and only one of them is holding the sword, you might as well have a second weapon. The most common companion weapon for the rapier is the dagger. Rapier and dagger fencing is fast, complex, and fun. In this workbook you will learn how to quickly develop the knack of parrying with the dagger while striking with the sword, using a series of games. You will then be taught a selection of rapier and dagger sequences from Capoferros Gran Simulacro, and develop from these sequences into freeplay.
We also cover the use of the cloak as a secondary weapon, drawing from Capoferro and Alfieri, teaching you how to use the cloak to parry attacks, to weigh down your opponents weapon before you attack, and even to blind them prior to running them through.
This print yourself version includes both versions of the book, for right-handers, with space for written notes on the right-hand page, and left-handers. All techniques are shown in the videos for both right-handers and left-handers.
