Powerful Wide Play 2: Mastering the Measure

Use clever footwork and flowing bladework to dance just out of your opponent's reach, take control of the center, and enter with powerful blows.

Playing the wide game (gioco largo) requires that you have a keen sense of measure and the capacity to enter into your opponent’s measure both powerfully and cleverly.

In this course you’ll learn how to clear the sword of an opponent who doesn’t want to be cleared and set up your movement into measure through compound actions.

We’ll cover:

  • Footwork for staying just out of your opponent’s reach
  • How to lure an opponent in while keeping your most effectively distance
  • Multi-clearing actions
  • How to work from a bind (where the opponent has parried you) to create wide 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.
