Based in Hamburg, Germany, DIMICATOR is Roland Warzecha's martial arts school for the reconstruction and practice of historical European swordsmanship. The focus is on unarmoured fighting with sword and buckler, as described in late medieval German manuscripts.
DIMICATOR offers training to a limited number of dedicated practitioners who pursue excellence in skill at arms.

A fully illustrated publication on medieval combat with sword & shield from Viking warrior to medieval knight is currently in the works. If you would like to be notified as soon as it is available or when an according crowd-funding campaign is being launched, please send an email.

Dear visitor,

unfortunately, you have chosen (or were forced) to use a very old browser, i.e. Internet Explorer 8—or even older. This browser can be considered as an antiquitiy already, and therefore I regret to inform you that you will be unable to see a lot of the contents, particularly the images.

Therefore I strongly suggest to use a more recent version of Internet Explorer or another modern browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
