Defending with your Dagger in Hand

The Seventh Master meets the attacker by gripping your own dagger with both hands while your arms are crossed. This is a very strong and securely braced defensive position. Once the defense is made, we’ll use counter attacks learned from various unarmed masters.

The Eighth Master defends against the opponent’s rising thrust using your dagger gripped with both hands. The sixth master gives us a wide variety of counter attacks, along with several interesting disarms.

The Ninth Master defends against the opponent’s descending attack using your dagger gripped with both hands. Counter attacking options we learned from the first, third and fourth masters become available to finish the play.

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.
