Camillo Agrippa’s Sword in Each Hand – Video Lesson 1

I’ve been rather annoyed lately by the recent videos that ask questions such as “Dual wielding swords – viable strategy or impractical fantasy?”. Of course it is a viable strategy. If it wasn’t we wouldn’t see so many historic fencing manuals telling us exactly how to do it.

So rather that rehashing that question again I am going to instead offer something a bit more useful: a drill basic on the actual historic text by Camillo Agrippa.

And because I know I’m not doing it perfectly, here are some illustrations.

Guard C or Wide Third


Guard D or Wide Fourth



Guard H: Wide Second
