This workshop will focus on the techniques and principles of Joachim Meyers Rappier. This weapon is used both for cut and thrust in a robust fencing system. During the class we will work on basic footwork, techniques and tactics. We are going to practice different possibilities of fighting from the guards and combine the different techniques into drills that lead you into free fencing exercises.
