Old Colony Armizare: Italian Early Renaissance Longsword Study Group.
Learn historical sword fighting on the South Shore!! No experience necessary!! Study and train the art of Early Renaissance longsword, dagger and grappling through the manuscripts of Fiore de'i Liberi, famous 14th century Italian knight, mercenary and fencing master. Boston Armizare is a Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) group practicing Early Renaissance combat according to the teachings of Fiore de'i Liberi and other Italian masters. Our students are dedicated to the rigorous study and effective practice of Armizare (The Art of Bearing Arms -- an integrated system of longsword, dagger, grappling, and more). We emphasize the martial efficacy and historical accuracy of our techniques and test our interpretations with speed and intent. The Old Colony Armizare Class is conducted at Capital Fitness, 2 B-C Commerce Way, Carver, Massachusetts 02330. There is plenty of parking out back! We also currently hold classes twice per week (Saturdays and Monday nights) at our primary location in Brighton at Boston Fencing Academy. Please see our FB page for more details. No experience is necessary and we will provide basic equipment initially, though students who stick around to become more serious scholars will eventually want to invest in their own gear. Club dues are $50 per month to attend one class per week (at either Carver or Brighton) and $100 per month to attend two classes per week. "Drop-ins" are $20 per class. Participants should wear weather appropriate athletic / workout clothing. We recommend that men wear athletic protectors (cups). Participants should also bring water!! Please complete our online waiver before class: http://tinyurl.com/BA-Waiver If you're interested in attending, please RSVP herald on FB. If you are new please message us via Meetup or FB as well.
