Gaining, Stringere, and Offline Movement (Rapier Scholar)

Using offline movement to maximize offense, defense, and to control time.

In this series you’re going to dive into the use of offline movement both into and away from the weapon to enhance stringere, increase your strength against the weapon, and control the third principal of stringere: breadth.

Topics in the series include:

  • Offline and crossline approaching movement.
  • Use of offline and crossline steps in defense.
  • Creating breadth in stringere.
  • Maximizing crossing in stringere.
  • Striking into and away from the crossing.

These classes build on a students strong foundation in finding, gaining, and stringere.
