Advanced Tempo Applications

Learn how to take, induce, and steal the four core moments when an opponent is most vulnerable: when they step in, change guards, attack, and recover.

In this series you’ll explore how to spot and control the four moments when your opponent is most vulnerable:

  • Primo tempo – As the opponent steps in, out, or freezes.
  • Due tempi – As the opponent recovers from your defence.
  • Contro tempo – As the opponent attacks.
  • Mezzo tempo – As the opponent prepares to attack or changes guard.

You’ll learn how to use these moments to seize control and strike in various ways as well as how to induce your opponent to give you one of these tempos on your terms.

Acknowledgement of Safety and Risk

  1. Practice all exercises slowly and with control.
  2. Practice using training swords that are not sharp and are specifically made for practice.
  3. Use protective gear for all exercises. In many of our videos we are not wearing head, throat or body protection in order to make clear explanation more possible. You should always use protective gear when practicing these arts regardless of the exercise.
  4. Be aware that injuries in training are always possible. Ensure that you are practicing with care and caution at all times.
  5. DuelloTV is not responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of sword practice inspired from our videos.
