Two-Sword Patterns & Flow (Sidesword Scholar)

Learn the beautiful discipline of Two-Sword from attack, to defense, cover, and flow. Built on the Bolognese two-sword systems of Antonio Manciolino and Achile Marozzo and delivered within the Duello Armizare framework.

Wielding two sideswords is a complex and rewarding challenge that looks like something out of a fantasy epic but is in fact a traditional part of Italian Swordplay. In this course you will learn how to wield two cutting rapiers in a manner that is both effective and graceful.

You will learn:

  • Fundamental guards and strikes
  • Core defenses and transitions
  • Cutting flows that take you between guard, attack, and defense

Experience with sidesword alone is an asset. Two equal length short swords or sticks are needed to get the most out of the exercises in these classes.

Acknowledgement of Safety and Risk

  1. Practice all exercises slowly and with control.
  2. Practice using training swords that are not sharp and are specifically made for practice.
  3. Use protective gear for all exercises. In many of our videos we are not wearing head, throat or body protection in order to make clear explanation more possible. You should always use protective gear when practicing these arts regardless of the exercise.
  4. Be aware that injuries in training are always possible. Ensure that you are practicing with care and caution at all times.
  5. DuelloTV is not responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of sword practice inspired from our videos.
