Bolognese Sidesword & Dagger Seminar – Review

Hello!

Over the last weekend Cork Blademasters had a pleasure of hosting Bolognese Sidesword & Dagger Seminar taught by excellent instructors from Sala D’Arme Achille Marozzo, Italy: Marco Rubboli and Marco Martoni. It was a tough, sweaty workshop but we have learned a lot and at the end of the seminar all participants were able to do some competent sparring in a mini tournament!

Sidesword & Dagger is a very effective system of fencing that can utilize any one handed cut-and-thrust weapon paired with a secondary item (dagger, shield, cloak etc) in order to make a well balanced offence/defence system and I‘m pretty certain it will enhance our skills in other weapons/weapon systems as well. The more you know the better fencer you’ll become which is something I wish to all of you! In the meantime, check out the instructors’ bout below:

For now it’s back to training time but within next 2 weeks we will host another seminar on Polish Sabre as well as launching new 10 Weeks German Longsword Course for the new recruits!

Stay tuned!
