Fiore’s One-Handed Sword – Third Play

Here is the illustration for the second play. It arises from the false edge parry shown two days ago.

Red: The base lines show that the master has a long, somewhat narrow stance. His opponent has a wide stance and seems unbalanced.

Purple: The master’s lead foot is slightly past the opponent’s lead foot.

Green: The right foot is turned somewhat inward, the left foot up on the ball.

Blue: The master is upright and balanced.

Yellow: The rear leg is straight, the front knee bent.

Interpretation

After the false edge parry beats his sword to the side, immediately increase the right foot. Press forward and down with the sword, collapsing his arm and cutting him in the head or face.
