Approaching Gioco Largo (Sidesword Apprentice)

Gioco Largo (“wide play”) refers to the situations where the opponent’s point is off of the centerline or their weapon is withdrawn in a position that requires they attack with large motions. In this series, we will learn how to approach an opponent that holds their sword withdrawn. We will explore how to attack their position and find safe ways to continue offensively.

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.
