The Meyer Frei Fechter Guild has graciously volunteered to host my new Fiore article until such time as my school's new site is up and running. It contains a brief rundown of the several Fiore manuals followed by a full concordance of Fiore's plays (using the Getty as the reference) and an index of the Fiore resources currently available.

[url=http://freifechter.com/article7.cfm]Examining the Nine Petals of the Flower of Battle[/url] (also in [url=http://freifechter.com/images/fiore_concordance.pdf]PDF[/url])

This was the template for a book project of mine that seems unlikely to ever come to fruition (largely because some of the museums involved refuse to play ball). It's also the sort of resource that I looked for and didn't find when I began studying Fiore a few years ago. I hope it helps get more people into the study of this extraordinary master.

This article, along with one other that I have planned, are essentially the bookends of my current period of Fiore research. The other article, which I haven't begun writing yet, will present an interpretation of his longsword teachings that differs significantly from the mainstream, one that I hope will be sufficiently controversial as to make people take a hard look at a lot of issues and assumptions that they currently consider settled. Look for that one in a month or two.
