Rapier Study Group

We are pleased to announce the creation of our second study group!

The Maryland KDF rapier group studies the use of the rapier and sidesword, pulling from both the German and Italian traditions.
Working primarily from Capo Ferro, we aim to interpret the source material and practice its use within a historical context. 

We study armed and unarmed defenses against the rapier and mixed weapons scenarios involving the dagger. Other source material
includes the work of Camillo Agrippa and Joachim Meyer.

This study group's schedule is Monday nights at our normal time and space. 

If you would like to join, you must have completed the Maryland KdF Beginner's Longsword Class
Once you have done that, please find us on Facebook at MKdF Rapier "Stabby McStabby" Study Group or contact us with the form down below.

Gear

 At minimum, participants should bring a fencing mask, light gloves, and a fencing jacket. If you have a rapier, please bring that as well. 
We do not have many extras. 

For a rapier of your own, reputable manufacturers are Darkwood, Castille, and Zen Warrior.
