Learn Rapier!

This video series is about fencing with the symbol of the renaissance - the rapier, according to the teachings of Salvator Fabris and other masters. See more at: http://sermiari.sk/learn-rapier-cutting/ Though most of people see rapier as a weapon which was used solely for thrusting, that is not entirely true. The renaissance rapier was a cut and thrust weapon and most of the rapier masters describe both kinds of attacking. The thrust of course should be our primary means of engaging our opponent but in some situations a cut becomes more natural and even more effective.
