  • We practice L'Arte D'Armizare (The Art of Bearing Arms), a historical European martial art. Our main sources of interpretation are the books (c[masked]) of Fiore dei Liberi, a fencing master from Friuli (thus the non-standard Italian spellings!).

    Our beginning students work on a combination of the longsword curriculum in Sword in Two Hands and the main Schola site, and also work on integrating the developing work on abrazzare (grappling) and daga (dagger/knife) skills. These skills are drawn from direct translation from historical sources, developed through multiple physical interpretations and tested at speed. Though we emphasize historical technique, our training sessions are a blend of warmup, interpretation, drill, and for those who've passed our safety standards, both focused and open sparring.

    New students should take our beginners' class first, or contact our instructors for more information.  We're happy to have visiting scholars from other programs come and play!

    Look for us on in the triangle of Magnolia Field immediately next to the bike path.  Further to the north is a backup if there's no space.  In the event of rain, we may relocate to our winter site in Cambridge.

    See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
