Deception both Wide and Narrow

Feints, attacks to miss, misdirections of line, and more in both wide play and narrow. This course is applicable to sidesword and longsword.

Both the wide and narrow games (gioco largo and stretto) are ripe for misleading your opponent. In this course we’ll first explore the nature of broad deceptions like feinted cuts, misdirections of line, and attacks to miss. Then we’ll look at how deceptions change when you’re in the bind using false thrusts, false pressure, and mutation of actions to keep your opponent constantly on the back foot. This course is applicable to longsword and sidesword so bring either or both.

Acknowledgement of Safety and Risk

  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.
