Intro to Partisan – Basic Thrusts

All of these assume the left-hand starts forward. In practice either hand may be forward.

Punta Portata – Thrust with Hands in Place

Take a step forward with the left foot only. At the same time, extend the left hand. The right hand comes up to the right shoulder, tucking the partisan under the armpit.

Do not perform a lunge. All these actions are designed for an upright stance with slightly bent knees.

Punta Slanciata – Flung Thrust

Keeping the left hand steady, slide the right hand towards the left. This will resemble a pool cue in use.

Do not let the partisan become parallel with the ground. If you do the partisan will become unbalanced and the iron will fall to the ground.

Do not take a step. Even a small increase of the foot will cause the partisan will become unbalanced and the iron will fall to the ground.

Punta Cambiata – Thrust with Hand Exchange

While taking a passing step, perform the punta slanciata. As your right foot reaches your left foot, your hands should meet. Reverse hands, and as you complete the step slide your left hand  towards the pedal. You will end in a proper stance on the left side.
