Introduction to Fabris – Italian Rapier Fencing

The SHF is thrilled to announce our course in Rapier according to Salvator Fabris starting on the 28th of September. The course comprises 6 consecutive Thursday evening classes, concluding on the 2nd of November. If you’re already convinced, register here. REGISTER HERE

The course will teach Fabris’ method of fencing with the single rapier from the ground up based on his book Lo Schermo, overo Scienza d’Arme, which was published in 1606 and influenced fencing culture for centuries.

Classes will be held at the Melbourne Salle (12/62-64 Oakover Rd, Preston) and will start at 6:30 pm and finish at 8 pm.

As always, the first class is free. Bookings are required – we need to ensure there’s equipment for everyone. You should wear comfortable black pants (tracksuit preferred) and a t-shirt.
If you’re already a monthly all-classes-included member, this one is included too!
Otherwise it’s $80 for students of the SHF and affiliated schools, or $120 for new students (this covers the cost of the class, as well as school membership and attendance at all SHF classes for the duration of the course).

Loaner equipment is available for the class to share as necessary.
