For the month of July, 2017, Columbia Classical Fencing instruction will take a brief excursion into the realm of cutlass and sabre. We will be training with short single sticks which are fast and satisfying to use. We will base our instruction largely on the work of Henry Angelo’s (The Younger) 1812 Naval Cutlass Exercises and his 1845 Infantry Sword Exercises. For our reference (and ease of reading) as an instructional aid, I have recreated his target rose from the latter. It is posted here in draft copy form for your reference and use. Should individuals outside of CCF make use of this recreation, please provide appropriate attribution and link back to CCF.
