2012: Flourish: Codex Döbringer

Video from HEMAC Dijon 2012, recorded by Artes Belli.

The Codex Döbringer (HS.3227a) mentions a training drill or flourish that is very vague in its description. This lesson will examine the flourish and demonstrate different interpretations of the flourish itself as well as assorted drills, techniques and concepts contained within the performance of the flourish against single and multiple opponents. At the end of the session individuals will have gained not only some new techniques for their repertoire but also a new point of view with regard to choreographed sequences of movements for training purposes.
