International Rapier Seminar

The International Rapier Seminar will take place on the 25th and 26th March 2017 in La Broque in France (50 km west to Strasbourg). The entire seminar will focus during two full days on the Art of Fencing with the Rapier, as practiced in different parts of Europe in the seventeenth century. Participants of the seminar will be able to follow classes by either widely renowned European instructors, either who deserved to have this reputation.

They will present their different rapier styles, spar freely against other practitioners of rapier fencing from all over Europe, and participate in a tournament. At least two classes will run in parallel at all times, and if possible, one aimed at experienced rapierists, and one for beginners.

This is the fourth IRS, after Delft, Dublin and London.
