Historical Bolognese Swordplay for Stage

Open Rapier & Buckler


Maldonado and Lubke


As sources for Historic European Martial Arts continue to become available and more people become knowledgeable about these techniques, there is a desire to add more of these to stage combat.  In this class we will use the 16th century Bolognese system of Achille Marozzo, Antonio Manciolino, and Giovanni Dall’Agocchie as a case study in how to take a historic system and translate it to the stage.
