Being Taught by Robert at SoCal Swordfight 2022

The Two Target Concept of Fencing

Every time you attack your opponent there are always two targets. No less. These targets are the sword which threatens you and the swordsman who wields it. Failure to deal with the former before you engage the latter leaves you open for your opponent to strike you in return—and that just will not do.

This class will teach what the Two Target Concept is, how/when to apply it, and some useful techniques to start you on the road to employing it in your own combat style.
