Today's random fencing style realization

I love the pedagogy of Fabris. He's clear, he breaks up the manual in a way that makes sense to me. I can follow what he's saying and doing.

On the other hand, I find myself actually fighting like Capo Ferro or Giganti, especially the more I learn about them. (The response to any motion is to kill you!) Not just because of the stances, but other things, too.

I'm not sure where that puts me, but it's interesting.

    1. Basically. I'm sure that's reasonably historical, and Fabris' concepts (ie, the "Art") have enough in common in some ways. I just find myself enjoying the concepts too, and not just the postures.
