The Host

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know „Fechtschule Klingenspiel“ we’d like to introduce ourselves to you briefly.

Fechtschule Klingenspiel consists of all types of history & weapon enthusiasts who focus on a practical and historically authentic approach to researching the fencing of ancient weapons.

Rapier as our main weapon takes most of our practice time but beside that there are also weekly trainings in sabre and sword and buckler (I.33). Although we mainly focus on the training of Single Rapier techniques our more experienced fencers also deal with Rapier in combination with its companion weapons.

Our rapier training focuses on the treatises of Ridolfo Capoferro and Salvatore Fabris interpreted by two different groups of fencers caused by the divergent nature of these two styles of Italian rapier fencing.
