Bolognese Sidesword Seminar


With great pleasure I’d like to invite you all to join our 2 days Bolognese Sidesword Seminar here in Cork organized in cooperation with Sala d’arme Achille Marozzo from Bologna. 

In two days you can learn the world famous Bolognese Fencing System under the eye of 2 head instructors from Italy: Devis Carli and Marco Martoni. We will provide training weapons and 6 hours of fencing in Bolognese style every day! All you need to do is to show up !

And just to let you know, Bolognese Fencing is a true gem amongst the medieval fencing styles, it bridges the gap between medieval and renaissance fencing styles by taking the best of both. It is known also as Dardi School (Bolognese Swordsmanship ) after a fencing master from XIV/XV century but it spans across 3 centuries influencing such great fencing masters as Manciolino, Marozzo and  dall’Agocchie creating italian schol of swordsmanship and influencing all future renaissance fencing styles. 

There aren’t many schools practising Bolognese Fencing and certainly none in Ireland so this is a rare occasion for all of us to taste and learn this unique system! Don’t miss this chance!
