From practice tonight. Â I didn’t really have a plan for this lesson, so it just kind of happened. Â After the first couple of actions I decided I wanted to work on attacks with advances and counter-disengagements.
- In time, as the instructor invites in 3rd, straight thrust
- In time, as the instructor invites in 3rd and retreats, straight thrust (advance lunge)
- In time, as the instructor invites in 3rd and retreats, feint direct and disengagement with an advance
- Same thing, instructor parries stops the final attack with a parry of 3rd, riposte by flanconade in 3rd, students defeats that with an imbrocatta (the counterattack, not the downward thrust)*
- In time, as the instructor invites in 3rd and retreats, blade seizure in 4th and glide
- Same thing but the instructor attempts to engage in 4th with a second retreat, students executes a counter-disengagement with a lunge
- Same thing, but the student does the counter-disengagement with a passing step continuing past the instructor
- Same thing, but now the student has a dagger and makes a second touch as they pass by the instructor
*4 There were actually a couple of variations on this theme, this ended up being the most common and was chosen by the student, not called by the instructor.
