The twentieth edition of the Fisas International Meeting will see a slightly different didactic proposal, designed in order to create a fast link to ancient treatises using a
Method created more than twenty years ago, and so offering a better level of learning than the usual formula, applied since 1999.
All the FISAS instructors will be engaged to create integrated workshops, oriented on three of the four FISAS weapons and organized in two phases:
“Phase 1” will be a compendium of fencing principles which generally help the practitioner to improve his knowledge and practice, which can be applied in any situation of our fencing practice.
“Phase 2” will be a more focused workshop, which will organize the principles learned in “Phase 1” by putting them to work to achieve a precise objective, or a technique – or a concept – present in one of the many specific historical documents of the weapon.
Therefore, in choosing to follow one or more weapons/styles, it is suggested to consider participation in both Phases, the first tackled as an in-depth session of specific basics; the second as a practice of a specific treatise technique, destructured and reorganized according to the “FISAS Method”.
In addition, as usual, we will have the pleasure of hosting some European colleagues who will offer us the result of their work and diffusion of their specific school and/or style.
The workshops will always be organized in two editions, so as to make it possible to follow the maximum number of courses possible, but the variety of the educational offer and the total time available of only 3 days make it quite impossible to follow all the courses offered.
For this reason, as organization commitee, we will take care to organize the course calendar in the most usable way possible, but we would suggest since now to draw up your own practice program, selecting the preferred proposals.
As usual in recent years, we will once again have the pleasure of organizing our “Iron Quadrangle”, for which we have noticed a high level of approval right from the start, years ago.
The Gala dinner, this year, will be held on Sunday, April 30th.
Stay tuned on this website for any further information and… we’re looking to join with you our twentieth international meeting!
