HI guys

Here you can find SOME CRUCIAL
POINTS for a better
understanding, there are even more points but

I think this is already a good start.

We should know for example the DEGREES of FORCE of the SWORD and how to EXPLOIT them to your ADVANTAGE (tersia)

during the ATTACK:

●Which PART of the sword must be used

according to the distance where you are


●Cutting without being cut

●how to remove any EXCESS of UNNECESSARY FORCE (a sword is NOT an impact weapon)

●The Concepts and applications of TIMING and MESURE

●How to switch from one guard to the other without having


●Where must be positioned the TIP of your sword to THREATEN constantly your opponent

●What TARGET has PRIORITY according to the distance where you are

●The TARGETS which causes DEATH
(You must be aware if it
TO KILL must be the LAST CHOICE)

●That there is no HAND movement without a corresponding FOOT movement

●That the attack is a parry, and the parry is an attack


●To do not go against the Force. (NO EDGE to EDGE contact) Parry beside or behind the plane of the cut.

●which part of the TRUE EDGE should be used and WHY

●which part of the FALSE EDGE should be used and WHY

●which part of the SIDE of the sword should be used and WHY

●Do not waste moves. A parry Which doesn't incorporated an
attack is a wasteful movement

●How to uses the force of the cut to deliver the counter

●WHEN and WHY the CHECKING HAND should be applied

●To Spill off the attack to the side counter and at the same time
