Glützhauw – Joachim Meyer
The Clashing Cut is done thus: if someone cuts at you from above, then strike with the back of your hand against his stroke to the upper left opening; let your blade slip off on his blade with the outside flat so that in the impetus, the short edge hits his head, palm away from him.
Since my last attempt of interpreting I haven’t made any progress with this action. But after seeing this description, I think I understand what’s supposed to happen.
Glancing Cut – Jakob Sutor
The image on the left shows a man in the position called the Glancing Strike: stand in the High or Wrathful Guard with the left foot forward and when your opponent strikes at you, you strike also, but in the motion of the strike, meet his blow with the false edge and hit with free hands on the inside, step with your right foot to his left while simultaneously hitting him on the head.
Note the position of the left fencer’s quillions relative to the right fencer’s blade. This doesn’t appear to be a mistake, but it does raise questions about how to perform this safely.
