Welcome to Renaissance Fence

This website is dedicated to exploring the European martial arts of the Renaissance. I’m specifically interested in the works of the Bolgnese masters from the Dardi School, and the works of the Italian Masters describing the use of the rapier. I’ll be providing updates to my research on these fencing masters, as well as updates on my publication schedules.

You can contact me either via phone (+61 407 917 497) or email (rcullinanau@gmail.com).

If you’re in Sydney, feel free to get in touch as I regularly attend / teach at training sessions with Stocatta, Sydney, or Rowany’s Tuesday night fencing classes. I also run my own fencing night for Stoccata dedicated to Italian Swordsmanship on Wednesdays.
