Giovanni uses the same basic cuts and thrusts we see in any Bolognese system. As a recap, they are:
Mandritto: All cuts from the right
Riverso: All cuts from the left
Fendente: Vertical downward cuts
Squalimbro: Diagonal downwards cut
Tondo: Horizontal cuts
Ridoppio: Diagonal upwards cuts
Tramazzone: Circular wrist cuts
Strangely, there is no mention of the vertical rising cut.
Falso Dritto: False edge, diagonal rising cut from the right.
Falso Manco: False edge, diagonal rising cut from the left
Imbroccata: Overhand thrust
Stoccata: Underhand thrust
Punta Riversa: Thrust from the left side
