Giovanni dall’Agocchie – Attacks

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
