  • Regenyei Armory Sail Tournament Dagger

    With our “Tournament” parrying daggers we would like to open new ways in HEMA. We wanted a dagger which can be used not only as a defense tool but also on the offensive side. But how can we make it safe for tournament usage? To achieve the desired result we had to test numerous steels and alloys. With our new materials we were able to design a blade which is highly flexible but do not suffer permanent deformation even on heavy trusts.

  • The Medieval Dagger By Guy Windsor - Hardback

    In Mastering the Art of Arms, Volume One: The Medieval Dagger, Guy Windsor presents a complete guide to the principles and practice of Italian dagger combat, as set down in Il Fior di Battaglia, a manuscript written in 1410. Readers are guided step-by-step through the process of mastering this six hundred year old art, from choosing a dagger to striking with it; from guard positions to steps and turns; from disarms to locks and takedowns; from safe falling practice to formal drills, and finally pressure testing their skills with sparring.

    Both a primer on the art and a methodology for on-going training, this book will give the complete novice a solid starting point, while providing useful drills and ideas for advanced martial artists. Those who study other traditional knife arts, and modern military combatives, will find many familiar techniques present in this ancient system.

  • The Armizare Workbook Part One: The Beginners' Course by Guy Windsor - Hardback

    Do you want to learn authentic medieval Italian martial arts and knightly combat?

    With a training partner, some simple equipment, and this innovative workbook, you can.

    Incorporating over 40 video clips, text instruction, and many images, this workbook is the most up-to-date way to learn the ancient art of Armizare. Armizare is the Italian word for the Art of Arms, as taught by Fiore dei Liberi in his extraordinary treatise 
    The Flower of Battle, written in about 1400.
    It is challenging to learn directly from the manuscript, so let the acclaimed and respected researcher, practitioner and teacher Dr. Guy Windsor make it easier for you with this workbook.

    Everybody learns differently, so there are options presented at various points in the workbook, allowing you to choose what to practise next, based on your interests. There are many paths up the mountain, and with this workbook you get to choose your own. The video clips include instruction for both right and left handers. The printed workbooks include abundant space for writing notes, and are available for both right and left-handers.

    The workbook is organised into eight classes, for you to take at your own pace. Every movement and technique is clearly described, with images from Fiore’s manuscript, and links to video clips showing you the technique in action.
