One of the first manuals detailing the use of the rapier, Agrippa was a theorist who simplified Marozzo's eleven guards to four. He was regarded as the man who defined the rapier as a thrusting weapon as well as one that can cut. His manual includes disarms, shield fighting, and insight into his personal philosophy.
