Set up by Stoccata founding instructor Stephen Hand in 2004, Stoccata Hobart teaches a range of historical fencing styles. Everyone trains initially in the core weapon, English basket hilted sword according to the system of late 16th/early 17th century author George Silver. Students then branch out into different weapons depending on their strengths and inclinations. Other systems taught include rapier (several systems, primarily Swetnam, Saviolo and Giganti), sword and shield according to Talhoffer and other sources, sword and buckler according to MS I.33 and military sabre according mainly to Matthewson.
