An Introduction to Bolognese Fencing
Bolognese fencing is a system built around the art of provocation: the fencer can hit their opponent in safety without being hit in return. This class will focus on the use of the single handed sword to explore the various provocations described by Manciolino and Marozzo in their treatises as well as how we can use them successfully. We will also round out the class by working with the Bolognese dagger as described by Marozzo, showing how these provocation principles are universal in Bolognese fencing across all weapons.

Students will need a mask, gloves, sword (34”-37” blade length), and a dagger simulator. Fencing jacket and forearm protection recommended.

Provost Cullinan began fencing in 1997 under Peter Linich, Maestro di Scherma. Building on this classical foundation, he branched out into historical fencing systems, and is now the leading researcher and exponent of Renaissance Italian fencing systems within Australia. He has been recognized internationally for his research in Bolognese swordsmanship. Richard is a Provost with the Stoccata School of Defence, and the Chief Instructor of the Drummoyne branch.

He has also qualified as an Instructor at Arms in Classical Italian School fencing through the Fencing Masters Certificate program at Sonoma State University, CA.
