Single Rapier: Deceptive Fight

Lessons 5 & 6: We are introducing the concepts of the deceptive fight, in particular the use of the "feint". A feint is a false attack designed to draw a predictable reaction from our opponent. In our second and following lessons, we look at the properties we bring into our feinting technique to keep ourselves safe while inviting our opponent out of position.

Lessons 7 & 8: We continue our exploration of feints looking at how to safely deliver a false attack to your opponent from a position of cover, where you have your opponent's line already closed, and using tempo as your cover, feinting in a moment where your opponent is unable to strike and more inclined to respond in a way that opens them.
