This chapter enumerates the three types of cuts. Again, each can be performed deritto or riverso.
Fendente: Downward cuts. These are useful for breaking low guards and can easily be mixed with Rota.
Rota: Upward cuts. (Keep in mind that the upward cut on the right uses the true edge.) Used to counter the fendente and as a precursor to another attack. Used for attacking the arms and hands.
Voltani: Horizontal cuts that can strike anywhere from the knee up. Defeated by both fendenti and rota, I get the feeling he doesn’t like these blows.
