Higgins Armory Sword Guild

diGrassi rapier demo

Members of the Higgins Armory Sword Guild demonstrate rapier and dagger techniques to an audience at Higgins Armory Museum.

The techniques are taken from Giacomo di Grassi's combat treatise, published in Italian in 1570. The manual was translated and published in English in 1594 as DiGrassi, His True Arte of Defence.
