Discours des armes et methode pour bien tirer de l'espée et poignard ("Discourse of Armes and the Method to Properly Fence with the Sword and Dagger", MS 66S230), is a French fencing manual written by Sieur Dancie some time before his publication of L'espee de combat ou l'usage de la tire des armes in 1623. It currently rests in the holdings of the Archives Municipales de Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France. It treats the use of the rapier, both alone and with the dagger.
