Dagger In Armour and Out

Learn to use the rondel dagger from unarmed vs knife to knife vs knife in both armoured and unarmoured contexts.

The rondel dagger is a 9 to 12 inch steel spike designed to puncture through maille and even plate. Used both in armoured combat and unarmoured it is a foundational tool for learning the wrestling system of Duello Armizare. In this series you’ll learn:

  • Forward and reverse grips and their uses
  • Core attacks and attack sequences
  • Nine dagger “remedy masters” — the core defensive positions and plays of the system
  • Techniques for solo and partnered practice

Bring a rondel dagger, short dowel, or modern knife trainer.
