Abstract

This project analyzed the fencing techniques of the rapier as taught by five different fencing masters from Renaissance Europe. A web page was then constructed which incorporated the analyses, a basic history of the rapier and rapier techniques, and animations of different attacks and defenses. The user-friendly website can be used as a basis for studying rapier techniques, or one of the individual masters, by people around the world.
