About the trainer – Florian Fortner

Florian intensively trains Rapier since 2011, focusing on Salvator Fabris’ most execellent work,  and the Bolognese fencing tradition as a close second. He only fights with weapons he made himself, which are always too beautiful to be destroyed. As a competitive fencer, he routinely scores well in national and international  tournaments.
