This fun little trick starts out as a Krumphauw using the short edge. It is thrown slightly early as if you simply screwed up the timing.
There-in lies the trick. As soon as your point passes under your foe’s sword, raise your arms high to defend your head. Your long edge will catch his sword, giving you a nice pivot point to drop your short edge into his right arm.
I like throwing this blow from vom Tag, but there is no reason why you can’t start all the way back in Zornhut or down in Pfluge.
Just as a wide step to the right is critical to a successful Krumphauw, a wide step to the left is essential to pulling off a short cut.
