The Destreza Pacifica School of Arms is a school of traditional fencing. Students are taught the art and science of defense based upon timeless principles and proven techniques of personal combat, as it was taught in fencing Academies throughout Europe in previous centuries.
In this school students train as if preparing for an encounter with sharp weapons. For this reason, we train seriously, with an emphasis on control and safety, using a rational, systematic application of scientific principles as a basis for sound defense. Our training is not intended for theatrical stage combat, sport fencing, or historical recreation groups.
