TSD's primary knowledgebase consists of the Italian systems below. This has been arrived at through academic and practical study derived from translating the manuals of the specific era and hands-on research of the appicable historical weapons. Our efforts have been further aided by Masters and peers in the Western Martial Arts community. This is a live list, as we are constantly researching, learning, and teaching new and expanded information. Please check back or inquire via email.

Italian Systems:

  • Rapier
  • Sidesword
  • Longsword
  • Unarmed Combat

We love what we do. As such, sometimes our interests expand beyond our primary areas of study. Below are some areas in which we also enjoy some academic and practical study.

Singlestick, Backsword, Spanish rapier, German systems of Sword & Buckler, Longsword, & Wrestling (primarily combative), Italian duelling saber, & French smallsword.
