My 2018 Kingdom A&S Festival Fiore Display
I have an interest in studying the combat system of Fiore dei Liberi, published in 1409. I study it both as a historic martial art and to apply his techniques to SCA combat forms. I founded the Tir-y-Don Fiore Study Group and frequently study and teach Fiore techniques at practice and at Atlantian Universities. I have been recognized with the Order of the Pearl for my HMA work.
As part of those studies I have created a series of flash card sets and drills that use the flash cards to learn the system:
- Fiore Longsword Postas Flash Cards and Drills
- Sword in Armor and Dagger Postas Flash Cards and drills
- Fiore Glossary Terms for footwork, range, and blows.
Documentation and class handouts:
- Introduction to Fiore Documentation and Class outline handout
- Learning Fiore Types of drills that can be used to learn and train Fiore's system
- Applying Fiore to SCA Combat video - Part 1, Part 2
- Fiore Longsword Class outline handout
- Fiore for the Armored Medieval Fight Class outline handout
- Fiore Bibliography
The Tir-y-Don Fiore study group has its own website and YouTube video channel where we demonstrate plays from the manual and methods for studying, learning, and applying them.
