ABCs of Destreza

Join David R. Packer for a two day, intensive introduction to the Destreza swordplay of Luis Díaz de Viedma. On Day 1, you'll get a feel for the core techniques of Viedma's system, and get lots of practice putting them to work. Day 2 is all about tactical application, and you'll discover how those core techniques open up a host of follow-ups and counters, and how to integrate them into sparring without being overwhelmed. Think of this workshop as a crash course: by the time it's done, you'll have a good feel for both the fundamentals and the broader scope of Viedma's swordplay, and will have a few good tricks in your back pocket to apply to your own fencing.

No prior experience is required, and loaner equipment is available. Pricing is on a sliding scale — please pay the fee that makes sense for you.
