About the app

The idea behind the app

I travel a lot, both for work and privately, so time and again I’m on the road and have to leave my training behind. That’s why I’ve been looking for ways to efficiently push my fencing forward, wherever and whenever I want, all without a partner. 

All the exercises and workouts in the app are perfect for slipping them in on the go or simply combining them as you please to create a extensive session!

Of course, you often have to sit around waiting somewhere, on the train or at the bus stop. Why not absorb fencing theory during this time? The whole theoretical concept of the art of swordplay is broken down into small bites in the app, allowing you to easily take them in in between and deepen your understanding.

All theory courses are systematically structured and guide you through the maze of sources to enable you to easily discover the ideas behind the texts yourself. Concepts are visualized using custom-made graphics and movements are explained through videos. The perfect companion for understanding renaissance swordsmanship.

And last but not least, the sources themselves. Simple navigation, clarity and retrievability of individual techniques on mobile devices are clearly emphasized. This way, you have every play at hand immediately and start practicing without any delay!

About Me

Hi, I am Stefan, a passionate fencer

Historisches Fecht training in wien

Italian fencing fascinates me, everything about it and everything around it. I want to share this passion with you, pass on the experience I have gained and let you in on the great joy that fencing has brought to me.


I’ve been a fencer for almost half my life and have been teaching rapier for a couple of years now, especially at our recently opened club Sprezzatura in Vienna. But that’s just the practical side.

My studies at the University of Vienna had a strong focus on history and teaching, while I also boosted my Italian language skills during stays abroad in Italy. The best prerequisite for delving into Italian sources and preparing them for modern training.

With Virtù, I want to offer you everything in one place that I have always strived to find somewhere else all these years. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see the art come alive!
