Intermediate to advanced students learn more complex swordplay from the material that was written in Il Fior di Battaglia, by Fiore Dei Liberi in 1409, and how/when to apply his techniques to a full speed longsword fencing match during sparring.  We highly encourage students to go out and compete in tournaments and attend events in the region or abroad when they are ready, but it is not required.
