Rapier & Dagger Sparring 27.06.16

Some light rapier & dagger sparring from Monday’s class, concentrating on movement, measure and footwork.

Like most sparring, it’s not perfect, because we are all trying different things out. We’re not going Hell for leather as, firstly, one cannot trial techniques, but also because we teach to respect weapons as ‘sharp’, much like firearms should always be respected, even when unloaded. However, there is no ego in the fight and if we’re hit, hopefully it’s because we’re trying something!
