2 thoughts on “Cutting Down from the Right, Up from the Left

    • hi Gareth. That’s a great question, and one that comes up a lot. Use “mandritto” as your forehand. If you’re right-handed, your forehand comes from the right. If you’re left-handed, your forehand comes from the left. As you guessed, the names are the same, just reversed (mirrored).

      In the full Longsword Fundamentals course you’ll go through cutting from all angles and go through the extra vocabulary for those cuts there.
