Rapier at NW Armizare

Italian Rapier

For those that have the swordfighting aspirations of a musketeer, Zorro, Inigo Montoya, or the Dread Pirate Roberts, we offer lessons with the rapier.

Rapier at NW Armizare, taught by Instructor Von Bektol, draws from sources such as those of Nicoletto Giganti (ca. 1606) as well from Von's long experience in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). In addition to his work at NW Armizare, Von is also a member of the "Black Tigers" rapier fight-group.

Students will learn rapier fundamentals starting with footwork, body mechanics and swordplay. Lessons are geared towards the beginner, but the class is a great workout for fencers of all levels.
