Posted on behalf of the Martinez Academy:

One of the world's best-known professional teachers of traditional fencing,
Maestro Ramon Martinez is internationally recognized as the foremost
on La Verdadera Destreza, the Spanish school of rapier fence. For several
years, many interested parties have contacted Maestro Martinez, seeking
information about this fascinating, but much-misunderstood, martial art.
in association with Palpable Hit Productions, the Martinez Academy of Arms
pleased to announce the release of "La Verdadera Destreza, the True Art and
Skill of Spanish Swordsmanship," a basic introductory video course on
rapier fencing.

The fruit of almost a quarter-century of research and practical experience,
these two one-hour videos present fundamental techniques in a simple form
comprehensible to the modern swordsman training without a master, and reveal
the public, for first time, the truth behind the erroneously termed "Magic
Circle" in an easy, step-by-step manner. "The True Art and Skill"
the applied geometry on which the Spanish school is founded, the wisdom
within the treatises of Spanish masters Don Jeronimo Sanchez de Carranza and
Don Luis Pacheco de Narvaez.
