The Fourth Master position defends against a downward vertical attack with two hands grabbing the weapon arm.

The Fifth Master position includes an attachment (shoulder grab) by the opponent. The first plays deal with the attachment directly, as a preemptive strike, or because the dagger itself is somewhat delayed. Then we ignore the attachment in the cases where the dagger is coming more immediately, and make our sure defense against it before counter attacking.

The Sixth Master defends against a rising blow to the belly or chest. We’ll make our defense with both hands (similar to the fourth master), and then work our counter attacking plays to conclusion.

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.
