Armizare Online Course Library

We are having multiple technical problems with our LMS (Learning Management System) plug-in and lessons are not displaying. We are converting to a newer and (we believe) more reliable plug-in, but this will take some time. We estimate completion before the end of August. Thanks for your patience.

Welcome to the Academy! We are developing a library of courses designed to teach martial arts – specifically Medieval and Renaissance Italian Martial Arts – in an online learning environment. Full memberships include courses, live online classes, forum access, and video feedback from our instructors. Check out our two free courses below, our Open Access Resources, and of course feel free to contact us with any questions!

In his youth, Fiore, son of the late Sir Benedetto of the noble family of Dei Liberi , wanted to learn the arts of arms and of combat. He wished to learn how to use the lance, the axe, the sword, the dagger and how to wrestle; he wanted to learn combat on foot and on horseback, both with armor and without. He also longed to learn of the temper of iron, of the nature of each weapon and of its aptness for defense and offense —and most of all, of combat with sharp weapons and of other wondrous and secret things that are known by few men in the world. And by the grace of God, Fiore learned so much from so many Masters and students, and in the courts of such great lords, princes, dukes and marquises, counts, knights and squires, that he was himself often asked to teach.  I, Fiore, am of the opinion that few in the world are Masters of this art, an art for which I want to be remembered. This is why I am composing a book that encompasses the art and all I know about iron, temper, and other subjects.

Fiore dei Liberi, Prologue, il Fior di Battaglia (The Flower of Battle), Italy, 1410
