Princes and Lords learn to survive with this art, in earnest and in play. But if you are fearful, then you should not learn to fence. Because a despondent heart will always be defeated, regardless of all skill.

- Fechtmeister Sigmund Ringeck, 1440


 Sometimes you will be as an extinguished light: do not doubt, you will soon be back. To gain the Art, not the old but the new, no effort was too great and very happy I am of having found it. I keep it secret, but as I let it go, I swear, it gives me riches and so it happens to those having this virtue.

-Fillipo Vadi, Liber de Arte Gladitoria de Dimicandi

Cymbrogi Tournament Team



To help promote a competitive and martial environment our School has annual tryouts for a small team of fighters.

These fencers commit to extra training and development including; calisthenics and weight training, a strict diet plan, mental visualization training, goal setting, fight analysis and review discussion, and monthly mock tournaments with alternating rulesets.

They are the elite fighting team of Cymbrogi and while they are not required to hold a rank or even to win events they are required to work their hearts out. 


Congratulations to our 2017 Cymbrogi Tournament Team members!  The first event of the year is in the books and we took 6 out of 7 awards!
