Again, assume a right-hand stance.
Parry on the High Outside
If the left-hand is forward, the outside is to the right. Just as with a rapier, attacks to the outside must come over or under the weapon.
Keeping the left hand stable, move the right hand into the body. This will cause the iron to rotate before the body, expelling the attack.
Parry on the High Inside
Just as with the rapier, the inside is the side one can be attacked along without crossing the opponent’s weapon.
This parry generally follows a parry to the outside. When in a neutral guard, the inside should not be a viable target.
Rotate the left hand away from the wrist so that the palm is forward and the knuckles are to the left. At the same time, rotate the right hand towards the wrist so that the knuckles are near or touching the belly. This will cause the entire partisan to move laterally across the body with only a slight change in angle.
Note: By wrist I mean the inside wrist where the tendons and veins are visible.
Keeping the left hand stable, raise the right hand to the ear. This will cause the iron to sweep out the area from the left hand to the ground.
Do not raise the right hand over the head. If the parry fails, the momentum will cause the partisan to become unbalanced.
