Products description

The premier manual on Spanish rapier fencing – English edition.

La Verdadera Destreza or Euclidean fencing is a fighting system born in Spain in the 16th century. Reserved for a small caste of hidalgos, it allowed the Grandes, members of the Spanish high nobility, to be, for two centuries, among the best fencers in Europe.
For the first time in nearly 300 years, this art of self-defense is available again. Destreza is the first fencing manual dedicated to the rapier, published in English. It will teach you all the techniques necessary to practice this weapon: the thrust, the cut, the reverse cut, the real and virtual atajos, the movement of conclusion and even the spectacular torneada. It will help you progress circle by circle until you become an expert at the rapier.

Sebastien Romagnan is the laureate of the Philippe Errard's Award 2013, for his work on Nobleza de la espada from Francisco Lorenz de Rada. He is one of the few French specialist in the practice of Destreza. He has taught Destreza for a few years in Annemasse (74), France, and Saint-Pierre en Faucigny (74) in l'Epée de Savoie.
In 2016, he won the Hema Award for his book "historical fencing" and the Youtube Page.
