The Scholar’s Assault draws upon historical plays from the 1410 manuscript of Fiore dei Liberi. These plays are further developed and explored in variation, sometimes beginning left or right, sometimes additing pre- or post-movement. Add these plays to your technical and strategic toolbox, and use them to enrich your understanding and practice of the historical swordplay tradition.
