Next up is the high guards. Again, there are four primary guards and a few others mentioned in passing.
- Guardia d’alicorno: Unicorn guard, essentially prima/first
- Guardia di testa: Head guard, arm is well extended and online. Sword is angled diagonal down to the left.
- Guardia di faccia: Face guard, well extended arm with palm up (i.e. seconda)
- Guardia d’entrare: Entering guard, same as above but with palm down.
Guardia di testa troubles me. The plates from Marozzo don’t match this description.
The face and entering guards remind me a lot of the Spanish school.
Alta, underarm, and overarm are mentioned but not really discussed.
