Fiore dei Liberi was a respected, widely known knight and martial scholar in 15th century Europe, a true martial champion in a period which did not lack martial champions. He is famous because of his astonishing manual of medieval combat, the Flower of Battle. It is the most extensive documentation of the martial arts of the time. We study and follow it rather seriously.
In AUDATIA we’re focusing on Fiore’s longsword technique. Expansions to AUDATIA include armour, and the contemporary German Liechtenauer school of swordsmanship.
