Meyer’s Longsword – Divisions of the Combatant

The divisions of the combatant primarily concern the middle or handwork phase of the fight. The divisions are quite trivial so Meyer actually spends most of chapter 1 talking about why he isn’t going to talking about it.

Of the body the divisions are upper-left, upper-right, lower-left, and lower-right. Likewise the head is divided into the four quarters with the nose as the center-point. The head is called out separately because much of the handwork endeavors to strike it.
