Medieval Dagger

A Medieval Knight, or Man-at-Arms, would be expected to know unarmed combat and dagger fighting in addition to the sword and spear skills we associate with them today.

In the surviving combat manuals, most contain long sections on unarmed striking and grappling, unarmed defense against the dagger, and dagger fighting.

The unarmed system is also fully integrated into the sword and spear work, with the majority of the techniques shown involving some degree of close work.
